Background on Project

Lecheng Group has proposed a 2 x 350 MW supercritical coal plant in Kucha, Aksu.[1]

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 Fuchen Kucha. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[2]

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

With no developments since proposed in 2015, the project appears to be cancelled.
