Background on Plant

The 400 MW power station (2 x 200 MW) has been in operation since 2008. It is owned by Ordos Share Holding Group.[1][2] An additional 2 x 330MW was commissioned in 2010.[2][3][4][5]

Proposed expansion

Ordos Share Holding Group has proposed expanding the power station by two 600 MW units.

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.

The restrictions likely cancel plans by Ordos Share Holding Group to expand the power station by two 600 MW units.
