Xuzhou Coal Mining Group is set to build a lignite-fired power plant in Inner Mongolia, after the Wulagai 2X1 GW project was officially approved by local authorities.
It is the first lignite-fired power generating project with generating unit at 1 GW and above, Xuzhou Coal Mining said.
The plant would be located in Xilingol of Inner Mongolia, the country's largest lignite production base.
Inner Mongolia churned out 20.19 million tonnes of lignite in July this year, accounting for about 91.5% of China's total, showed data from sxcoal.com.
The project will adopt advanced flue gas water extraction and waste water reuse technology. Supporting environmental protection facilities including efficient dust removal, desulfurization and denitration equipment will also be built.
Total investment of the project would be 7.5 billion yuan, the company said.
The project, as part of the country's strategy of trans-regional power transmission, is expected to increase power supply to Jiangsu, supplying electricity to the Xilingol-Taizhou UHV DC power transmission line.
Xuzhou Coal Mining Group is a state-owned coal company head quartered in Jiangsu.
