Background on Plant

Huadian Lu'an power station is owned by China Huadian. The first two coal-fired units, totaling 270 MW, were brought online in 2006,[2] and were retired in 2017.[3]

An additional two coal-fired units, units 3-4 totaling 1,320 MW, was planned. Unit 3 received a permit from China's NDRC in July 2009. Four years later, in December 2013, unit 4 received an NDRC permit. The two units were both brought online in 2014.[4][5][6][7][8]

As of 2017, Huadian Lu'an power station is planning to convert units 3 and 4 to CHP power units, to supply heating to the city of Liu'an, particularly the Yu'an Economic Development Zone.[3]

Description of Expansion

Huadian is planning to build two more units, units 5-6 with a total capacity of 2,000 MW. The new units are scheduled to be completed in 2020. A feasibility study for the project was approved in March 2014.[9]

The proposed units are listed in the Anhui Province Power Development 13th 5-Year Plan as a back-up project.[10]

However, as of November 2018 there has been no progress on units 5-6, and they appear to be shelved.
