Background on Plant

China Datang has proposed a 4 x 660 MW power station in Baling Industrial Park. The first two units were permitted in November 2015 by the Guizhou Provincial DRC. [1]

Construction on units 1-2 was planned for 2015 and operation in 2017.[2][3]

In March 2017 it was reported that construction on units 1-2 will start in July 2017, and the operation will be in 2018 and 2019. [4]

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.[5]

Datang Xingren power station Units 1-2 are among the postponed coal-burning units,[5] and also appeared on an updated list of postponements released in September 2017.[6]

2018: Construction to resume soon

In July 2018 it was reported that construction of units 1-2 planned to begin soon.[7]
