Wujiaqu power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of China and coal|
Wujiaqu power station (信发农六师煤电公司五家渠发电厂) is a 1,440-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant under construction in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, China.
An additional 4,400 MW is under development.
The undated satellite photo below shows the power station in Wujiaqu Sub-Prefecture City (Wujiaqu is under the administration of the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps.)
Background on Project
Unit 5 was completed in 2014, and unit 6 in 2015.
2016: Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity
Due to new restrictions announced during 2016 by the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission, further capacity expansions at this location appear to be on hold or cancelled. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.
Proposed units 7-8 are therefore likely shelved.
