China Datang has proposed a power station of 1,320 MW in Huan County. It is a coal-electricity integrity project. [1] A pre-feasibility study has been carried out.[2] The location of the plant has been confirmed by the authorities. [3]

The plant received EIA clearance in June 2016,[4] and was permitted for construction in July 2016.[5]

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, including Huan County power station. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[6]
