Laohekou power station (湖北能源襄阳老河口发电厂) is a proposed 1,320-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Hubei Province, China.

Background on Project
In March 2016 China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) released guidelines for regulating coal power development to crack down on the severe and growing coal power overcapacity crisis. 13 provinces were told to suspend new approvals through 2017, including Hubei. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.
