China: massive coal-fired plant for Anhui

China is planning a giant coal-fired power project that will generate more electricity than even the massive Three Gorges Dam. Huaneng Group, the parent of Huaneng Power International, aims to build the giant thermal plant with China Power Investment Corp. and Huainan Mining Group, said Mr Pu Hongjiu, vice-director of the China National Coal Association. The project, to be built in the eastern province of Anhui, is expected to have a capacity of 20,000MW by 2020, outstripping the world’s biggest hydropower project being built on the Yangtze River, Mr Pu said. A coal squeeze since late last year has threatened normal operation of thermal power plants and contributed to the worst electricity crunch in 20 years.
