Background on Plant

China Datang is constructing a 2 x 350 MW coal plant in Dongling District. The project was permitted on December 25, 2013.[1]

Project suspended, then revived

July 2017: Plant postponed by government

In July 2017 China's National Energy Administration (NEA) postponed or halted 185 coal-burning units across 21 provinces, totaling nearly 107 gigawatts (GW). 114 coal units totaling 65 GW are postponed for consideration until after the end of the 13th 5-year plan, in 2020. In addition, 71 coal units totaling nearly 42 GW were halted indefinitely for regulation violations. NEA said its goal is to eventually suspend or halt 150 GW of coal capacity during the 13th 5-year plan (2016-2020).[2]

Dangtang Shendong power station Units 1-2 are among the postponed coal-burning units.[2]

September 2017: Suspension lifted

After political negotiations, China's National Energy Administration (NEA) released an updated list of postponed and halted coal projects on September 26, 2017. The new list contained 151 units totaling 95 gigawatts (GW). Dangtang Shendong power station was no longer on the list, suggesting the plant is not suspended.[3]

Construction resumes

In November 2017 the plant was reportedly near the end of construction.[4]

Unit 1 was commissioned in January 2018,[5] and unit 2 in May 2018.[6]
