Guodian Changyuan Jingzhou Power Station (国电长源荆州热电公司) is a 600-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Hubei Province, China. An additional 700 MW is proposed.

The plant used to be the site of the Guodian Changyuan Shashi power station (国电长源沙市热电厂), which was retired in 2009.

Background on Plant

Guodian Changyuan Jingzhou power station, formerly known as Guodian Changyuan Shashi thermal power plant, was a three-unit plant originally built in 1986 to 1998 with a total installed capacity of 140 MW. The units were decommissioned in 2009, after the two current coal-fired units of the power station, totaling 600 MW, were brought online.[1][2][3]


An additional 2 x 350 MW units are planned to be added to the power station, units 3-4.[4] The units were permitted for construction on December 29, 2020.[5]


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]
