Zhundong Wucaiwan-1 Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of Zhundong Wucaiwan-1 power station, totaling 700 MW, were brought online in 2012. The plant was originally owned by Shenhua Group.[1][2][3]

Zhundong Wuwaican-2 Plant

Shenhua is currently planning Zhundong Wuwaican-2 power station of 2 x 660 MW.[4][5][6]

The new units are under construction and planned for completion in 2017.[7][8]

The units were delayed by central government restrictions on coal plant development, introduced in 2016. Unit 1 was commissioned in June 2020.[9] Unit 2 was commissioned in July 2020.[10]


On August 28, 2017, China's State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (SASAC) announced that China Guodian Corporation and Shenhua Group will be jointly restructured. Shenhua Group will become China National Energy Investment Group and will absorb China Guodian Corporation. It will be the largest power company in the world by installed capacity, as well as the world's largest coal producer.[11][12] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[13]
