Huaneng Tongchuan power station (华能铜川照金发电厂二期扩建项目) is a 1,200-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Shaanxi Province, China.
The photo below shows the plant in Yaozhou District, Tongchuan Prefecture, Shaanxi Province.
Background on Plant
Huaneng is planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a total planned capacity of 2,000 MW. The project was on hold, having not been approved for an environmental permit due to air issues with the plant's location.
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 Huaneng Tongchuan. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.
