Background on Plant

The first 4 phases, with 12 units of the power station have been retired before 2007. The 5th phase, also known as Wuhu Zhaoda Power Company, with total capacity of 250MW, was retired in 2010.[1]

CPI built two additional coal-fired units at this plant, units 15-16, with a total capacity of 1,320 MW. The new units were completed in 2010-2011.[1]

Expansion

CPI has proposed two additional coal-fired ultra-supercritical units at the power station of 1,000 MW each, known as units 17-18.[2]

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.

Ownership

In July 2015, China Power Investment Corporation (CPI) and State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation (SNPTC) merged to become State Power Investment Corporation (国家电力投资集团), one of the five largest state-owned electricity producers in the People's Republic of China.[3]
