Background on Plant

The first two units of the power station, 2 x 350 MW, began operating in 2011. The plant is owned by CPI Ningxia Energy Aluminum.[1][2][3]

A third unit of 350 MW was commissioned in 2015.[4][5]

The three units were commissioned without receiving the necessary permits for construction.[6]
