Background on Project

CPI was planning to build a coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 1,320 MW in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.[1][2][3]

However, there has been no further news on this project since 2010, and it appears to be abandoned.


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.[4]
