Yinxing power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of China and coal|
Yinxing power station (中铝宁夏银星发电公司) is a 1,320-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, China.
The undated satellite photo below shows the power station in Majiatan Town, Lingwu.
Background on Plant
In 2008 China Huaneng's Huaneng Ningxia Energy was planning to build a 2 x 600 MW coal-fired power plant in Majiatan Town of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, known as Huaneng Luoshan power station.
The plant later changed sponsors and names. In 2011 Ningxia Electric Power Group Co. proposed a 2 x 660 MW coal-fired power station in Lingwu, the Yinxing power station. The proposal is near the company's existing Ningdong Maliantai power station. In 2015 it was under construction and planned for operation in 2017.
2016: Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity
In 2016 China's National Energy Administration issued "scale control" (coal-fired capacity limits) on particular "sending out" locations that feed ultra-high voltage (UHV) long-distance power lines, including Inner Mongolia (Xilingong), Inner Mongolia (Ordos), Shaanxi, Ningxia, and Xinjiang.
As of January 2017, the affected area includes this power station, which may be scaled down as a result. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.
