Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of GEPIC Zhangye power station, totaling 650 MW, were brought online between 2005 and 2006.[1]

Description of Expansion

GEPIC and SDIC were planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a total capacity of 1,320 MW. The feasibility study was completed in 2008. However, the project has made little progress since then. In 2014, SDIC was seeking buyers to sell its 45% of shares of Zhangye Power Station.[2][3]

Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

In 2016 the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission announced guidelines for restricting coal-fired capacity in China. In January 2017 China's National Energy Administration suspended specific coal-fired projects, including GEPIC Zhangye. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[4]

For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.

Ownership

Gansu Electric Power Investment and SDIC are the investors in the plant. The proportion of the investment is GEPIC 55% : SDIC 45%.[5]

In 2014, SDIC was seeking buyers to sell its 45% of shares of Zhangye Power Station.[6]

In May 2019, plant sponsor SDIC said it no longer planned to invest in new thermal power.[7] In December 2019, ChinaCoal bought SDIC's share in the coal plant.[8]
