Background on Project

Inner Mongolia Asset Management Bureau is seeking approval for a 1,320 MW (2 x 660 MW) ultra-supercritical coal plant at Fuhu Taiping village in Zhuozi County. It is planned for operation in 2017. Longer term plans call for a phase II of an additional 1,320 MW.[1][2][3]

In 2017 the project was reported as 2 x 350 MW.[4]

Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

In January 2017 China's National Energy Administration sent letters to 13 provinces to enforce the suspension of over 100 specific coal plants under planning or construction, totaling nearly 100 GW of capacity. In the letters, it said the projects included should be postponed to the 14th Five Year period (2021-2025), including Heyi.[5]

In May 2019 plans for the plant were revived with a new sponsor, Zhuozi County Energy Construction Investment Group.[6]

The plant was permitted for construction in October 2019. Construction began in August 2020.[7]
