Background on Plant

The first four coal-fired units of Panxian-2 power station, totaling 2,400 MW, were brought online between 2006 and 2007. The plant is sponsored by Yueqian Power Co., a subsidiary of Guangdong Yudean Group.[1] The electricity it generates supplies Guangdong Province.[2]

Description of Expansion

Plant owner Guizhou Yueqian Power Co is planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a planned capacity of 660 MW each.[3][4][5][6]

However, there have been no developments on the units since 2013, and they appear to be abandoned.

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.
