Background on Plant

Units 1-2

The 2 x 135 MW coal-fired units of Zhoukou Longda power station (also known as Zhoukou Shangshui power station) were commissioned in 2003.[1][2][3][4] The units appear to have been retired in 2016. Google Earth archival photos show that the cooling towers were demolished between October 2015 and February 2017.

Unit 3-4 expansion

Plant owner Yongtai Group planned to build two coal-fired units at this plant, with a total capacity of 1,320 MW. The new units were permitted in 2014. Once completed, the two older units will be shut down, as part of the national "big pressure on the small" policy of replacing old, inefficient coal units with newer and larger ones.[5][6]

Unit 3 is under construction and planned for 2017. Unit 4 is permitted.[7] Google Earth shows site clearing underway in October 2015 and construction well underway on both units as of April 2017.

Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

In January 2017 China's National Energy Administration proposed about 100 planned and under-construction coal power projects for suspension until after 2020, including Zhoukou Longda.[8]

For details, see China's 2016/2017 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.

Construction ongoing

Both units continue to move forward with construction.[9][10][11]

Unit 3 was commissioned in December 2017.[12] Unit 4 was commissioned in February 2018.[13]
