Background

APP China has mainly focused its investment on the Yangtze River Delta and the Pearl River Delta in the pulp and paper manufacturing industry, including Gold East Paper (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd., Hainan Jinhai Pulp & Paper Co., Ltd., Guangxi Jingui Pulp & Paper Co., Ltd., Ningbo Zhonghua Paper Co., Ltd., Ningbo Asia Pulp & Paper Co., Ltd., Gold Huasheng Paper (Suzhou Industrial Park) Co., Ltd, and Gold HongYe Paper Group Co., Ltd.[1]

The APP Zhenjiang Jindong Mill power station was presumed related to the Gold East Paper (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd. (referred to as Gold East Paper), which was established in 1997,[2]. However, this must be confirmed.

As of 2020, at least two coal units appeared slated to retire that year.[3] In 2021, it was reported that Gold East Paper was investing billions of yuan in the "intelligent manufacturing project of high-grade fiber-based materials." State Grid Zhenjiang New Area Power Supply Service Center appeared to be considering new power supply options ("6月3日,国网镇江新区供电服务中心提交了镇江新区东部能源中心建设所需供电配套方案。").[4] The company's power supply was projected to see changes, with some capacity potentially being replaced by a regional heat supply center around 2023, although details were unclear ("金东纸业企业拥有一座110千伏用户变及燃煤高耗能自备电厂,供电容量仅10万千伏安,然而因新项目投产...").[5]
