Background on Project

China Resources Power Holdings and Chongqing Energy Investment Group have proposed a coal-electricity "integrity project" with 10*660MW coal-fired units in the area of Guizhou Bijie Prefecture, with two 660 MW units each in Dafang County, Qianxi County, Jinsha County, Nayong County and Qixingguan District, as well as a 20 mtpa coal mining project. The estimated investment is near ¥100 billion. All the electricity generated by these 10 units will supply Chongqing DC Municipality. CR Qianxi power station is one of them.[1]

CR Dafang power station and CR Qianxi power station were permitted as the first phase of the integrity project in 2015 by both DRCs of Guizhou Province and Chongqing Municipality.[2][3][4][5] Construction is planned for 2015-2017, at a total investment of 3.6 billion yuan.[6][7]

In July 2019 the power station was listed as "key projects for clean electricity in Guizhou Province", with a planned operation of 2020.[8] Satellite photos through July 2019 show no signs of construction.
