Background on Project

Beijing Energy Investment Holding and Shanxi Coking Group is currently planning to build a coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 700 MW (2 x 350 MW) in Shanxi Province.[1][2]

Construction began in June 2015. Commercial operation is planned for 2017.[3]

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 Lüliang Pangpangta. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[4] For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.

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]

Lüliang Pangpangta 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]

Listed as key project of 2018

At the end of 2017, the Shanxi Provincial Development and Reform Commission issued its "key projects of 2018", which recommends Lüliang Pangpangta power station for construction.[7]

Project substantially completed

Satellite photos for 38.046602, 111.09854 show that the project was already substantially completed as of May 2017.
