{{#badges:CoalSwarm|Navbar-Chinacoal}}Huaneng Zhengning power station (华能甘肃能源正宁电厂) is a proposed 1,320-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Gansu Province, China.

Longer-term plans call for an additional 2,000 MW.

Background on Project

China Huaneng is currently planning to build a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 1,320 MW in Gansu Province.[1] The plant was permitted in 2014.[2][3]

An additional 2,000 MW has been proposed but has yet to seek permitting.[4] In the "13th 5-year Energy Development Plan for Gansu Province", issued in September 2017, the second phase of Zhengning power plant is a back-up supporting coal power plant for the Eastern Gansu UHV transmission line.[5]

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, including Huaneng Zhengning. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[6]

For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.
