Yulin Longtan power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of China and coal|
Yulin Longtan power station (华电玉林龙潭热电联产) is a proposed 2,000-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China.
The map below shows the location for the proposed power station at the southwest of Yulin Longtan Industrial Park, on the bank of Najiao River.
Background on Plant
China Huadian has proposed a power station of 700 MW in Longtan Town. It would be a co-generation power plant, supplying heat to Yulin Longtan Industrial Park, as well as electricity. A feasibility study has been completed.
Due to new restrictions announced in 2016-2017 by China's National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission, further capacity expansions at this location may be on hold or cancelled. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.
Due to the restriction policies against new coal plants in Guangxi, China Huadian decided to develop a 2*17MW gas-fired distributed CHP power project at Yulin Longtan Industrial Park instead. The company said it will seek opportunity in the future to revive the coal power project.
In March 2020, the project was revived as a 2 x 1,000MW coal-fired power station. It was listed as a preliminary project in the Guangxi "Energy Network Infrastructure Plan 2020-2022" (《广西“能源网”基础设施建设大会战实施方案（2020-2022年）》).
