Datang Khorgos Cogen power station (大唐霍尔果斯热电项目) is a proposed 700-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, China.

With no developments since 2015, the project appears to be abandoned.

Background on Project

China Datang has proposed a 2 x 350 MW supercritical coal plant in Gemohur, Khorgas, Ili.[1]

Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

In January 2017 China's National Energy Administration suspended over 100 planned and under-construction coal power projects with a total capacity of over 100GW in 13 provinces, including Datang Khorgos. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[2]
