Background on Yili Yining-1

The two existing coal-fired units of Yili Yining-1 power station, totaling 660 MW, were brought online between 2012 and 2013.[1]

Two more units of 700 MW total (2 x 350 MW) are proposed at Yili Yining-1.[2] But with no development since 2013, the expansion appears to be abandoned.

Yili Yining-2

Yili Yining-2 is a proposed coal plant at the same location. It would have a total planned capacity of 1,320 MW. The project feasibility report for a 2 x 660 MW plant was submitted in 2012.[3] But with no developments since 2012, Yili Yining-2 appears to be abandoned.
