Background on Plant
The MEPC rejected units 3&4 's EIA approval in November 2011, citing the power station was operating before its EIA clearance, and its insufficient environmental facilities.  Units 3&4 received NDRC permit for construction in April 2013. At the same month, it went operating.  Huaneng recently built two additional coal-fired units at this plant (included in the above total), with a total capacity of 2,072 MW. The new units were completed in 2013.
