Background on Project

China Datang was planning to build a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 2,000 MW in Anhui Province.[1][2][3][4]

The project's Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) was published in January 2014.[5]

In 2015 the plant's EIA was rejected, due to insufficient plans to reduce regional pollution; being in an environmentally-sensitive location; and having insufficient public participation. The planned capacity was listed as 2 x 660 MW.[6][7]

However, in the Anhui Province Power Development 13th 5-Year Plan published in May 2017, Datang Chuzhou power station was listed as a start-construction project.[8]

As of July 2018 the power station is moving forward in a new location, to avoid the problems with the original EIA.[9]

The plant was approved for construction in July 2020.[10]
