Guangxi Fangchenggang Power Station

Guangxi Fangchenggang Power Station

Guangxi Fangchenggang Power Station is the largest power project with external investment in Guangxi Province. With a majority 70% shareholding, it is the first coal-fired power station in the Chinese Mainland where CLP has taken a lead role in construction and operation.

Fangchenggang is located in Beibu Wan Economic Zone and supplies power to support the rapid development of this region. It also contributes to the West to East electricity transmission initiative via China Southern Grid.

The Fangchenggang units operate at supercritical conditions to improve efficiency and have flue gas desulphurisation to minimise the environmental impact from the use of coal.

Fangchenggang is also notable for its use of imported coal. The Mainland’s coal reserves are located mainly in the north, with long transportation distances to the southern coastal areas. With domestic demand for coal increasing significantly, it is important to secure imported supplies from Indonesia, which we do with a combination of a long-term contract and shorter term purchases. The power station has a marine terminal capable of receiving large coal ships.
