Background on Plant

Guidong Power Hezhou power station is a 2 x 350 MW supercritical coal plant under construction in Hezhou Prefecture, Guangxi Province.[1] The project is aimed at supplying electricity to Hezhou Aluminum-Electron Industry. The project has not received a permit for construction. [2]

July 2017: Plant halted by government

In July 2017 China's National Energy Administration (NEA) postponed or halted 185 coal-burning units across 21 provinces, totaling 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.[3]

Guidong Power Hezhou power station Units 1-2 are among the halted coal-burning units that are suspended indefinitely,[3] and also appeared on an updated list of halted projects released in September 2017.[4]

2018: Project revived

The project was listed as one of three planned coal-fired power stations in the 2018-2020 Guangxi Major Industrial Plan. It is planned for construction in 2019.[5] It was permitted for construction in July 2020.[6]
