Heshun power station (潞安星光煤电公司), also known as Lu'an Xingguang Heshun LHV Coal Power Plant (山西国际能源和顺星光低热值煤发电), is a proposed 700-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Shanxi province, China.

With no developments since first proposed in 2015, the project appears to be cancelled.

Background on Plant

Heshun power station is a proposed 2 x 350 MW waste coal plant in Heshun County.[1]

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 Heshun power station. In response, Shanxi International Energy Group voluntarily cancelled the coal plant.[2]
