The units replaced the 2 x 125 MW Nanchang-1 power station, which was commissioned in 1986 to 1988 and retired in 2009.
In September 2014 it was reported that CPI was planning to build two additional coal-fired units at the power station, with a total planned capacity of 2,000 MW.
However, with no further developments, the expansion appears to be cancelled.
In July 2015, China Power Investment Corporation (CPI) and State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation (SNPTC) merged to become State Power Investment Corporation (国家电力投资集团), one of the five largest state-owned electricity producers in the People's Republic of China.
