Background on Project

China Kinho has proposed a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 1,200 MW in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.[1] The project feasibility report was submitted in 2011.[2] The project was still seeking permitting in 2015.[3]

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 with a total capacity of over 100GW in 13 provinces, including Weizhou wastecoal power station. The project was reported as 2 x 350 MW. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[4]
