Shanxi Ying County power station (山西国际能源银光发电公司应县电厂) was a proposed 1,320-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station that has been shelved in Ying County, Shuozhou, Shanxi Province, China.
The map below shows the approximate location of the power station in Ying County, Shuozhou, Shanxi Province, China.
The Shanxi Ying County power station was originally proposed by the Shanxi International Energy Group in 2013, consisting of two 350 MW units. The project was proposed to meet the growing demand for heat and power in Ying county, Shuozhou. Supporting documents at the city and county levels were submitted to the Provincial Development and Reform Commission in early 2016 to apply for inclusion in the Shanxi Electric Power Development Plan; they were later accepted. The project was designed to include desulfurization, denitrification and dust removal technologies.
The coal plant's owner changed in 2019 after a 70% transfer of equity occurred. The power plant then expanded to become two 660 MW units. However, there has been no news since then (as of June 2021) so the project is assumed to have been shelved.
