Background on Plant

The four existing coal-fired units of Fuzhou Kemen power station, totaling 2,400 MW, were brought online between 2006 and 2008. The plant is owned by China Huadian.[1]

Description of Expansion

Huadian is currently planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a total planned capacity of 2,000 MW. The new units were scheduled to be completed in 2016.[2][3][1]

The proposed units were permitted in 2015. They are now planned for 2018.[4]

2017: Expansion postponed by government

In July 2017, the NEA released the "Guideline of Supply-Side Reform of the Coal Power Bubble". The Guideline included a draft list which slowed down or halted 185 coal-burning units across 21 provinces, totaling 107 GW. 114 coal units (65 GW) are ordered to slow down the construction progress during 2017 to 2020, and are not allowed to connect to the grid in 2017. In addition, 71 coal units (42 GW) were halted indefinitely for regulation violations. The list partly overlapped with the projects listed in the January NEA letter to 13 provinces.[5]

Fuzhou Kemen power station Units 5-6 are among the postponed coal-burning units,[5] and also appeared on an updated list of postponements released in September 2017.[6]
