Background on Project

China Huaneng is planning to build a four-unit coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 2,640 MW in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.[1][2]

Units 1 and 2 were permitted for construction in 2013.[3] They would use supercritical technology.[4]

Units 1-2 began operating in 2017.[5]

2016: Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

Due to new restrictions announced during 2016 by the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission, further capacity expansions at this location appear to be on hold or cancelled. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.

The proposed units 3-4 are therefore likely shelved.
