Background on Plant

According to Platts, two existing coal-fired units of Huaneng Turpan power station, totaling 1,200 MW, were brought online in 2012, and two more were planned to be completed by 2015.[1][2] However, there have been no press reports of this project since 2010, it is not mentioned on the Huaneng website, and it cannot be seen in Wikimapia. There is a wind project at the same location in construction. It appears that the coal project has been abandoned.[3][4]
