Laowuji Waste Coal power station (国投盘江老屋基煤矸石发电厂) is a proposed 300-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Guizhou Province, China.

With no developments since 2016, the project appears to be cancelled.

Background on Project

In February 2009, SDIC and Panjiang Investment Holdings co-founded SDIC Panjiang Electricity Generation Co, with 55% owned by SDIC and 45% by Panjiang Investment Holding.[1] The goal of the company is to develop waste coal power plants in Panjiang and Shuicheng, the two mining areas in Liupanshui Prefecture. Plans included the 600MW Laowuji waste coal power station.[2]

In 2010, Guizhou Provincial DRC approved for SDIC Power Holdings to start preliminary work on a 2400MW of coal capacity in Panjiang and Shuicheng mining areas, including the 4 x 300 MW Panbei power station, the 2 x 300 MW Pan'nan power station, and the 2 x 300 MW SDIC Wangjiazhai power station. The first two units of Panbei power station went operation in 2013 and 2014.[3]

In the end of 2014, Laowuji Waste Coal power station was permitted by the provincial DRC. The capacity changed to 2x 150MW, with a 12MW back-up unit.[4]

In September 2016, Laowuji Waste Coal was seeking clearance for its EIA report changes, indicating it was under development. [5]

In February 2018, the Guizhou Development and Reform Commission (DRC) published a list of Key programs and Major Projects for the province's economic development in 2018, which will have priority for loans, land, and subsidies. There are five coal power projects on the list, not including Laowuji Waste Coal power station. Therefore, any immediate plans for this project appear to be abandoned.
