Background on Project

China Datang has proposed building a 2 x 350 MW power station in Xiangyang. The project was permitted in December 2015 and planned for construction in 2016.[1]

2017: Plant postponed by government

In July 2017, the NEA released the "Guideline of Supply-Side Reform of the Coal Power Bubble". The Guideline included a draft list which slowed down or halted 185 coal-burning units across 21 provinces, totaling 107 GW. 114 coal units (65 GW) are ordered to slow down the construction progress during 2017 to 2020, and are not allowed to connect to the grid in 2017. In addition, 71 coal units (42 GW) were halted indefinitely for regulation violations. The list partly overlapped with the projects listed in the January NEA letter to 13 provinces.[2]

Datang Xiangyang power station Units 1-2 are among the postponed coal-burning units,[2] and also appeared on an updated list of postponements released in September 2017.[3]
