Tianjin's coal-fired integrated gasification combined cycle power plant has set a new record, with running 3,917 hours or around 163 days continuously, the longest such operation duration in the world.

As China's first near-zero emission IGCC demonstration project, the Tianjin IGCC is a major part of the Green Coal Power Program initiated by Huaneng Group in 2004. It is also among the most efficient coal-fired power stations globally.

IGCC is a clean coal technology that turns coal into a synthetic gas, removing impurities before the gas is burned in a turbine.

The Tianjin demonstration IGCC power plant started construction in Sept 2009 and was put into operation in 2012, with an installed capacity of 265 megawatts.
