Background on Plant

According to a 2011 article in Ningxia Xinhua Channel:[1]

  • Two 330 MW units were put into operation in 2006.
  • Two 660 MW units (Phase II) were under construction. The units were planned for completion in 2013.
  • Two 1,000 MW units (Phase III) were planned.

The two 660 MW units (Phase II) were relocated and are now referred to as a separate power station, the Yinxing power station.[2]

There have been no developments on the two proposed 1,000 MW units (Phase III) since 2011, and they appear to be deferred or abandoned.
