Background on Project

In 2010 it was reported that China Huaneng was planning to build a coal-fired power plant known as Huaneng People with a total planned capacity of 2,400 MW in Qinghai Province.[1]

In 2011 the power station was reported as 1200 MW.[2][3]

In 2015 the plant was reported as 2 x 350 MW and sponsored by Qinghai Mingde Energy Logistics Group.[4]

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 Qinghai Minhe. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[5]
