Background on Project
Xuzhou Coal Mining Co. is currently planning to build a coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 1,320 MW in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. It is planned for operation in 2017.
The plant was permitted in March 2016.
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 Xinjiang Kuche Ehuobulake. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.
For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.
