On December 15, construction of the largest scale coal-electricity project cluster in China's energy construction history started on all fronts in northern west China's Yinchuan City.

Reporters learned that eight new coal, power and coal chemical construction projects started simultaneously.

Ningdong Coalfield is one of the 13 large-scale coal bases ratified by the government, with a proven coal reserve of 27.3 billion tons. According to estimates, the eight projects will trigger development in relevant industries and result in an investment scale of 130 billion yuan, directly consuming around 600,000 tons of steel and around 1 million tons of cement, as well as creating 45,000 jobs.

The plan calls for all the projects in the Ningdong base to be completed and in operation by 2020. The total investment scale is expected to hit 300 billion yuan.
