Background on Project

Qingyang Xifeng Cogen Power is planning to build a coal-fired CHP power plant with a total planned capacity of 2 x 350 MW in Xifeng District, Qingyang City.[1]The plan once was sponsored by China Huaneng Gansu Energy Development Co. [2][3]But later the sponsor shifted to Zhonglongjian Power Construction Co. The co-sponsors include Gansu Energy Group, Qingyang Energy & Chemical Group.

The project received permit for construction in April 2016. [1]

2017: Plant halted 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.[4]

Xifeng power station Units 1-2 are among the halted coal-burning units,[4] and also appeared on an updated list of halted projects released in September 2017.[5]
