Background on Plant

China Datang and the Xinjiang regional government have proposed a power station of two units of 350 MW each in the city of Changji. They plan for construction to begin in 2014 and operation in 2015,[1] however in 2015 the company was still seeking approval for construction to begin.[2][3]

The plant was permitted in March 2016.[4] Construction began in March 2018.[5]

As of January 2022, with no apparent construction progress since at least January 2019 based on Planet satellite imagery, the power station is presumed shelved.
