Background on Project

SDIC & Zhongyu Guoxin Energy have proposed a power station of 2,000 MW in Neixiang County.[1][2] The power station was permitted in July 2015.[3]

The power station is under construction.[4]

2017: Plant postponed by government

In July 2017, the NEA released the "Guideline of Supply-Side Reform of the Coal Power Bubble". The Guideline included a draft list which slowed down or halted 185 coal-burning units across 21 provinces, totaling 107 GW. 114 coal units (65 GW) are ordered to slow down the construction progress during 2017 to 2020, and are not allowed to connect to the grid in 2017. In addition, 71 coal units (42 GW) were halted indefinitely for regulation violations. The list partly overlapped with the projects listed in the January NEA letter to 13 provinces.[5]

SDIC Neixiang power station Units 1-2 are among the postponed coal-burning units,[5] and also appeared on an updated list of postponements released in September 2017.[6]
