Background on Plant

Shenhua Shengli power station is a proposed two-unit, 1320 MW coal-fired power plant in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The plant is sponsored by Shenhua Group and partners.[1][2][3][4][5]

The power station received environmental clearance in 2015. It is planned for operation in 2017,[6] although Planet satellite photos from April 2018 suggest construction is still ongoing.

Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

In 2016 China's National Energy Administration issued "scale control" (coal-fired capacity limits) on particular "sending out" locations that feed ultra-high voltage (UHV) long-distance power lines, including Inner Mongolia (Xilingong), Inner Mongolia (Ordos), Shaanxi, Ningxia, and Xinjiang.[7]

As of January 2017, the affected area includes this power station, which may be scaled down as a result.
