Puyang Longfeng power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of China and coal|
Puyang Longfeng power station (河南濮阳龙丰电厂) is a retired 175-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Henan Province, China.
A new 1,200 MW coal plant at the site was commissioned in 2018.

Background on Plant
The first three units of Puyang Lunggung power station, totaling 150 MW, were commissioned in 1991-1997 and retired in 2009. The 25 MW back-pressure unit 4, commissioned in 2008, was retired in 2017. The plant is owned by Henan Investment Group.
Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity
In January 2017 China's National Energy Administration suspended over 100 planned and under-construction coal power projects, including Puyang Longfeng. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.
July 2017: Plant postponed by government
In July 2017 the NEA released the "Guideline of Supply-Side Reform of the Coal Power Bubble". The Guideline included a draft list which slowed down or halted 185 coal-burning units across 21 provinces, totaling 107 GW. 114 coal units (65 GW) are ordered to slow down the construction progress during 2017 to 2020, and are not allowed to connect to the grid in 2017. In addition, 71 coal units (42 GW) were halted indefinitely for regulation violations. The list partly overlapped with the projects listed in the January NEA letter to 13 provinces, including Puyang Longfeng power station.

Satellite photography shows at least one unit operating
Satellite photographs show that the southern-most of the two new units began testing or operating in November 2017.
