Background on Plant

Maoming power station began as two 25 MW units built with the assistance of the Soviet Union. These were followed by three 100 MW units: two of the units were commissioned in 1975 and the third was a rebuild of the first two 25 MW units commissioned in 2004, called New Unit 1. The three 100 MW units were retired in 2009.[1][2] [3]

The current plant includes the following units:[4]

  • Unit 5 - 220 MW - operating 2003
  • Unit 6 - 330 MW - operating 2006
  • Unit 7 - 600 MW - operating 2013

Although this project was approved for construction by NDRC in December 2013, it began construction in 2011. Units 5-6 are subcritical CHP units, and Unit 7 is a supercritical coal-fired plant.[5][6][7]
