Background on Project

In January 2016 the Inner Mongolia government website listed Datang Wujianfang power station as a proposed 2 x 660 MW coal plant in the region, proposed by China Datang.[1]

2016: Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

On March 17, 2016, China's National Energy Administration (NEA) released the Coal Bubble Alert System, dubbed the ‘traffic light’ system, to crack down on the growing coal power overcapacity crisis. Inner Mongolia was deemed a "red light" region, meaning no new coal projects should be permitted. Therefore any further developments at the power station appear to be on hold or cancelled.

For details, see China's 2016/2017 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.

2019: Project revived

In November 2019 it was reported that an EIA had been submitted for the project.[2]
