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.[2]

In 2016, the companies proposed a new 2 x 660MW plant with the name of Liupanshui Circling Economy demonstrating power station.[3] The power station completed its preliminary feasibility study in January 2016. It will be a waste coal ultra-supercritical power plant.[4]

There were no further developments on the project after 2016, the year the central government implemented the traffic light policy, which prohibited new coal plant development throughout most of China's provinces, including Guizhou. (For details, see China's Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.)

However, in March 2019 Guizhou was given a green light for new coal plants. In February 2020 it was announced that plans for development of the project was revived, this time as a 2 x 330 MW coal plant.[5]
