Background

Anshan Steel Company No 2 power station is a three-unit coal-fired power station totaling 345 MW. It also burns gas and coke. A 125 MW unit 4 burns gas.[1]

New unit

Anshan Iron & Steel Group plans to shut down its three units (345 MW total) and replace them with one 350 MW supercritical unit.[2]

Suspension

In March 2016 China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) released guidelines for regulating coal power development to crack down on the severe and growing coal power overcapacity crisis. 13 provinces were told to suspend new approvals through 2017, including Liaoning Province. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.
