Background on Project

Qingtongxia Aluminum Works power station is a 2 x 330 MW coal plant in Qingtongxia, which was originally owned by Ningxia Energy Aluminum of China Power Investment (CPI).[1]

Expansion

CPI is planning to build a two-unit 2,100 MW expansion of the plant. The feasibility report was submitted in 2014.[2]

With no developments since 2014, the project appears to be abandoned.

Ownership

In July 2015, China Power Investment Corporation (CPI) and State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation (SNPTC) merged to become State Power Investment Corporation (国家电力投资集团), one of the five largest state-owned electricity producers in the People's Republic of China.[3]
