Background on Plant

Dingzhou power station is a four-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 2,520 MW. The first two units were completed in 2004 and the second two units in 2009. The original three shareholders of the power plant were: Shenhua Guohua Power Co (40.5%); Hebei Construction & Investment Group (40.5%); Datang Hebei Power Co, (19%).[1][2]


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.[3][4] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[5]
