Background on Project

Xinhui Shuangshui Power Company is planning to build 2 x 600MW coal-fired units in Guangdong Province.[1]

One of the two units received EIA clearance and the NDRC permit in August 2014. The unit is planned for operation in 2018.[2] Unit 2 is still seeking permit.[3][4]

Project suspended by central government

In January 2017 China's National Energy Board directed the Guangdong Province to suspend or postpone nine coal projects in the province, including this one, due to excess coal capacity.[5]
