From Global Energy Monitor

Zhongrun Xing County power station (中铝山西华润有限公司自备电厂) is a proposed 1,320-megawatt (MW) waste coal-fired power plant in Shanxi Province, China.

With no developments since the project was first proposed in October 2016, it appears to be abandoned.

Background on Project

CHALCO and China Resources have proposed a 2 x 660 MW waste coal power station in Weijiatan Town, Xing 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 Zhongrun Xing. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[2]
