The company Gold Huasheng Paper (Suzhou Industrial Park) Co., Limited (Gold Huasheng) is part of Asia Pulp and Paper (APP). APP is an Indonesian pulp and paper company based in Indonesia and founded in 1972. APP is a subsidiary of Sinar Mas Group and was officially formed in 1994 when Sinar combined its paper and pulp operations from Tjiwi Kimia and PT Inda Kiat Pulp & Paper. APP-China was spun off in a debt-for-equity swap.[1]

The coal units are located in the Suzhou Industrial Park.[2]

According to Enipedia (2015), two coal-fired power units at the site have a total capacity of 100 MW and were completed between 1998 and 1999.[3]

A third unit may have come online in 2009. The company's website was no longer accessible in January 2023 (link from APP and Mills landing page). The power station's details were unclear.[4]
