Background on Project
The 4 x 1,000 MW project was permitted for construction in August 2017. It will be the peaking power source for the Jiuquan Wind-Solar power base. It is also the supporting power plant for the Jiuquan to Hunan UHV Transmission Line.
Construction started on units 1-2 in September 2017. Planet satellite photos from June 2017 to April 2018 show construction progress on units 1-2.
Unit 3 & 4 are listed into 2021 Gansu Provincial Major Project Investment Plan, in catalog of "Planned new construction projects计划新开工项目". 
Units 3-4 postponed by central government
In January 2017 China's National Energy Administration suspended over 100 planned and under-construction coal power projects, including the second phase of Gansu Electric Guazhou Changle, totaling 2000MW. The second phase of the Guazhou Changle power station (Units 3-4) is proposed to postpone further development to after 2020.
