Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of Baotou Donghua power station, totaling 600 MW, were brought online in 2005. The plant is owned by China Huadian.[1][2]

Description of Expansion

In 2009 Huadian began plans to build additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a total planned capacity of 2,000 MW.[3]

Feasibility studies for a 2 x 660 MW power station were released for review in 2014. The units would be ultra-supercritical and are planned for operation in 2017.[4]

2016: Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

Due to new restrictions announced during 2016 by the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission, further capacity expansions at this location appear to be on hold or cancelled. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.

The project is sponsored by Baotou Donghua Thermal Power, jointly owned by Huadian Power and Donghua Power. The company was fined in 2012 for operating fraud.[5]
