Tianyuan Manganese power station (天元锰业自备热电厂) is a proposed 700-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, China.
The map below shows the proposed location for the plant in Zhongning County.
Background on Project
July 2017: Plant postponed by government
In July 2017 China's 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.
For more information, see China's 2016/2017 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.
March 2018: Continued construction
Satellite photographs from July 2017 and March 2018 show substantial construction during the period.
