Background on Plant

Zheneng Yueqing power station is a four-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 2,520 MW in Zhejiang Province. The first two units, totaling 1,200 MW, were completed in 2008. Units 3 & 4, totaling 1,320 MW, were completed in 2010. The plant is majority-owned by Zhejiang Provincial Energy Group.[1][2]

Proposed expansion

In 2015 it was reported there was a proposed 2 x 1,000 MW ultra-supercritical coal expansion at the power station.[3]

There was no further news on the proposed expansion until October 2020, when it was reported the new units were seeking permit approval.[4]

Construction for at least one unit was underway, although it was unclear when it began. According to one source, a commencement ceremony of "the third phase" was reportedly held in July 2021.[5] Other sources noted construction began in October 2020[6] or September 2021.[7] Construction of unit 5 was presumed underway, and in turn, unit 6 was presumed permitted.

As of June 2022, unit 6 was also under construction, though the date entering construction remained unclear.[8]
