Background on Plant

CPI has proposed a power station of 1 x 350 MW and 2 x 50 MW at Jingu Harbor, Beibu Gulf Port.[1][2]It was planned as a Co-generation power plant, supplying heat and steam, as well as electricity to the Jingu Petrochemical Industrial Park. The EIA report was rejected in 2015 by MEPC, due to lack of important content.[3]

Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

In January 2017 China's National Energy Administration suspended over 100 planned and under-construction coal power projects, including CPI Qinzhou. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[4]

For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.

2020:Project cancelled

In July 2020, the project was formally called off.[5]


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.[6]
