Background on Plant

Fuzhou Jiangyin power station is a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 1,200 MW. The plant was completed in 2007, and was originally owned by China Guodian.[1]

Expansion

According to the Fujian Provincial Development and Reform Commission (August 2015), two new 600 MW units are planned for the power station. The technology type and date is not specified.[2]

The EIA for the two ultra-supercritical units (2 x 660 MW) was approved in June 2016.[3] According to the EIA report, the plant's two existing units are renovating to co-generation to supply heat to the Jiangyin Industrial Park. The second phase of 2 x 660MW will also be co-generation units.[4]

Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

Due to new restrictions announced during 2016 by the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission, further capacity expansions at this location appear to be on hold or cancelled. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.

With no developments since 2015, the remaining proposed units of the power station appear to be abandoned. In October 2018, the Fujian Province stated the province will not develop any further coal power plants in the 13th Five Year Plan period (2016-2020) with two exceptions: 1) projects which have already been permitted; and 2) combined heat and power (CHP) plants. Units 3-4 of Guodian Jiangyin power station has no permits and is not a residential CHP plant, although it is planned to be an industrial CHP plant.[5]

Ownership

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.[6][7] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[8]
