Background on Plant

Heshun power station is a proposed 2 x 350 MW waste coal plant in Heshun County.[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 Heshun power station. In response, Shanxi International Energy Group voluntarily cancelled the coal plant.[2]
