The Henan Energy Regulatory Office, the local branch of the National Energy Administration, has spared no efforts to boost coal supply to local power plants, in a bid to expedite the recovery of power supply which was severely hit during the recent rare-seen rainstorm.
Power supply in Henan was dealt a heavy blow by heavy rainstorm during July 19-23, as damage caused by the severe foods to railway lines and some road sections curtailed thermal coal delivery into the central China province.
The office applied vehicle permits for the trucks carrying disaster-relieving material, including thermal coal, and allocated thermal coal to key thermal power plants to increase coal stocks based on timely updating of stocks data.
The scheme for the grant of vehicle permits was formulated at a meeting with local transportation management department, local power dispatching center and eight branches of China's major power groups, the office said.
Coal supply priority was given to power plants in Zhengzhou, Xinxiang, Jiaozuo and Hebi, where power supply was severely affected by the floods, it noted.
The office also said it would improve management on coal delivery to raise coal stocks at power plants in an orderly manner.
