Ban on development of small power plants in part of China

Jul 14, 1997 02:00 AM

June 24, 1997 Provincial authorities of central China's Henan have banned construction of thermal power stations with generating capacities below 100 MW. The authorities will encourage different localities to finance large-capacity power plants, so as to meet the demand for transfer of economic growth mode in the power industry and to suit the demand of environmental protection.
Over past years, Henan has witnessed fast expansion in its power industry. Small thermal power stations in some areas have been tangled in a fight for a bigger share of the power market. By the end of last year, the province had owned moderate and low pressure generating units with a combined capacity of 3100 MW, accounting for 28 % of the province's total generating capacity.
Construction of small thermal power stations across the province with an aggregate generating capacity of 1500 MW, is still being carried out swiftly, while more localities have proposed that new small thermal stations with 3000 MW be constructed.
The provincial government said in its decree that they would tighten macro control over small thermal power stations in different localities and be strict with the approving procedures for these projects, stipulating that small thermal power stations without permit will get no loans, nor land allocation.
