The Xiwu Jinshan station, consisting of two 2×150MW units, was commissioned in January 2013 by Xiwu Jinshan Power. Fueled by waste coal, the plant's construction was approved by the National Development and Reform Commission on August 15, 2008.[2] The project was officially launched in May 2010, with construction starting the same June. The power plant has a total investment of 1.81 billion RMB, of which 1.292 million RMB was a bank loan and a separate 201 million RMB consisted of investments into environmental protection.[3][2] The facility is connected to the northeast power grid, with an estimated annual output of 1.6 billion kWh.[2]

Pollution and Emission Controls

According to the operating company's environmental impact assessment report, the Xiwu Jinshan power plant has a wastewater treatment system to remove traces of coal in its wastewater, an oil-targeting wastewater treatment system, industrial wastewater treatment system, and a domestic sewage treatment system. The facility also has two ash silos and two slag silos to store its coal ash and slag, which are supposedly all used for other purposes (e.g. construction).[3]


The power plant was originally planned to have two phases; the first has been completed and the second consists of a 350MW unit, which has yet to be constructed or approved. According to Xiwu Jinshan's website, this expansion project was planned to be included in China's 13th Five-Year Plan. The company is working with Haorong Nonferrous Metals Co. and Inner Mongolia Jilin Gol No. 2 Open-Pit Coal Co. to form an industrial chain of coal, electricity and metals.[4]
