Background on Plant

China Huaneng proposed a power station of two units of 350 MW each in the city of Fukang. The company said construction is planned to begin in 2014,[1] although the permit for project approval and permitting was submitted in July 2014.[2]

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 Fukang Second. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[3]
