Background on Plant

The plant is owned by China Huaneng and Beijing Energy Group. The six existing coal-fired units of Huaneng Shangdu power station, totaling 3,720 MW, were brought online between 2006 and 2011:[1]

Description of Phase IV Expansion

China Huaneng and Beijing Energy Group are currently planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, units 7-8, with a total planned capacity of 1,320 MW.[2][3][4]

2016: Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

Due to new restrictions announced during 2016 by the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission, further capacity expansions at this location appear to be on hold or cancelled. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.
