Background on Plant

According to owner Guangdong KingSun Power, the power station consists of two 220 MW units (built in 1998) and two 330 MW units (built in 2010), all currently operating.[1] The first phase of 2*220MW units were original fired with heavy crude oil. In 2006, after ¥500 million($73.5 million) investment for renovation, it changed to coal water slurry, a combustible mixture of fine coal particles suspended in water. According to the company' s website, the first phase of Nanhai Foshan power station is the largest coal water slurry fired power units in the world. [1]

A proposed third phase of two 600 MW units has been moved to another city.

Description of Expansion

Jiangsu KingSun Power was planning to build additional coal-fired units at Nanhai, with a total planned capacity of 400 MW.[2]

In 2012 it was reported that the new plant would be 1200 MW and relocated in Zhanjiang due to the local residents' s protest for its potential pollution.[3][4][5] It is known as the Zhanjiang Donghai power station.[6][4]
