Background on Project

China Datang has proposed a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 2,000 MW in Shandong Province.[1]

Although it was originally scheduled for completion in 2015,[2][3] the power station was not permitted for construction until August 2015.[4]

Construction began on units 1-2 in 2016.[5]

Units 3-4

In 2015 China Datang said the company was planning two more units, units 3-4, of 1,000 MW each.[6]

Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

In January 2017 China's National Energy Administration suspended over 100 planned and under-construction coal power projects in 13 provinces, including Datang Dongying. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[7]
