Changzhi Xinlong power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of China and coal|
Changzhi Xinlong power station (晋能集团长治欣隆煤矸石电厂) is a proposed 300-megawatt (MW) waste coal-fired power plant in Shanxi Province, China.
The undated satellite photo below shows the proposed location for the plant in Changzhi County.
Background on Project
Jinneng Group is currently planning to build a two-unit waste coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 300 MW in Shanxi Province. Unit 1 was permitted in 2013, and unit 2 in 2015.
As of December 2018 construction has still not begun, and plans appear shelved.
2017: Expansion halted by government
In July 2017, the NEA released the "Guideline of Supply-Side Reform of the Coal Power Bubble". The Guideline included a draft list which slowed down or halted 185 coal-burning units across 21 provinces, totaling 107 GW. 114 coal units (65 GW) are ordered to slow down the construction progress during 2017 to 2020, and are not allowed to connect to the grid in 2017. In addition, 71 coal units (42 GW) were halted indefinitely for regulation violations. The list partly overlapped with the projects listed in the January NEA letter to 13 provinces.
For more information, see China's 2016/2017 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.
2020: Project cancelled
In its 2019 Social Responsibility Report, Beijing Energy Group referred to the project as cancelled.
