|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of China and coal|
Datang West Ujimqin Wujianfang power station (大唐五间房发电厂) is a proposed 1,320-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China.
The map below shows Xiwuzhumuqin (West Ujimqin) Banner, the proposed location for the plant.
Background on Project
In January 2016 the Inner Mongolia government website listed Datang West Ujimqin Wujianfang power station as a proposed 2 x 660 MW coal plant in the region, proposed by China Datang.
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.
2019: Project revived
In November 2019 it was reported that an EIA had been submitted for the project.
