Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of Baotou Hexi power station, totaling 1,200 MW, were brought online in 2006. The plant is owned by China Huadian.[1]

Description of Expansion

Huadian has proposed to build additional coal-fired units at this plant.[1][2]

In August 2015 Huadian said it would be pursuing a phase II of 2 x 660 MW at the power station.[3]

2016: Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

Due to new restrictions announced during 2016 by the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission, further capacity expansions at this location appear to be on hold or cancelled. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.
