Background on Plant

China Datang and partners have proposed a power station of two units of 350 MW each. The project was approved by the National Development and Reform Commission in 2014.[1]

Land clearing and prep work began in 2015.[2][3]

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 Shanxi Anyu. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[4]

2018: Project advancing

In July 2018 China Energy Construction Shanxi won the bid for the survey and design of the plant, with construction expected to begin soon.[5]
