Datang Duolun power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of China and coal|
Duolun power station (大唐多伦发电厂三期) is a 2,400-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China.
A proposed 1,320 MW expansion of the power station appears to be cancelled.
The photo shows the existing project in Duolun County, the approximate location where the plant would be built in Xilingol (Xilinguole) Prefecture, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.
Background on Project
Chinese sources describe a 2 x 660 MW addition to an existing plant. This may refer to the 2,400 MW Duolon power station (多伦电厂) at 42.2123405, 116.577065. According to Wikipedia (with no sources cited), 4 x 600 MW is operating and an additional 2 x 600 MW is planned. However, as shown in the photo above, there appear to be five operating units at the plant's location, rather than the four units described in Wikipedia.
There has been no news of the proposed expansion since 2011, and the additional units appear to be cancelled.
