|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of China and coal|
Huaneng Zhunger Weijiamao power station (华能北方联合电力魏家峁煤电公司) is a 1,320-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China.
An additional 1,320 MW is proposed.
The map below shows the location of Weijiamao, the approximate location where the plant is located in Zhunge'er (Junggar) Banner, Ordos (E'erduosi) Prefecture.
Background on Project
Units 1-2 began operating in 2017.
2016: Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity
Due to new restrictions announced during 2016 by the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission, further capacity expansions at this location appear to be on hold or cancelled. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.
The proposed units 3-4 are therefore likely shelved.
