Background on Project

Hebei Construction Investment Energy Investment Co. has proposed a co-generation coal-fired power station of 700 MW in the Industrial Park area of Xingtai City, Hebei Province. The power station is planned for operation by the end of 2016.[1] It received environmental clearance in 2015,[2] and began construction that year. Operation is planned for 2016.[3]

Unit 1 began operating in November 2016.[4] Unit 2 began operating in December 2016.[5]

Project suspended, then revived

July 2017: Plant postponed by government

In July 2017 China's National Energy Administration (NEA) postponed or halted 185 coal-burning units across 21 provinces, totaling nearly 107 gigawatts (GW). 114 coal units totaling 65 GW are postponed for consideration until after the end of the 13th 5-year plan, in 2020. In addition, 71 coal units totaling nearly 42 GW were halted indefinitely for regulation violations. NEA said its goal is to eventually suspend or halt 150 GW of coal capacity during the 13th 5-year plan (2016-2020).[6]

Xingtai Cogen power station Units 1-2 are among the postponed coal-burning units.[6] It is unclear if the units must suspend operations.

September 2017: Suspension lifted

After political negotiations, China's National Energy Administration (NEA) released an updated list of postponed and halted coal projects on September 26, 2017. The new list contained 151 units totaling 95 gigawatts (GW). Xingtai Cogen power station was no longer on the list, suggesting the plant is not suspended.[7]
