Background on Project

According to a report by World Resources Institute, Sichuan Beineng is planning to build a coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 1,200 MW in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.[1]

A 1,200 MW plant is mentioned in the Wengniute "Eleventh Five-Year Plan,"[2] but as of 2014 Sichuan Beineng is described as mainly a hydropower company,[3] and it is unlikely they are the sponsor of the plant.
