Background on Plant

The existing power station consists of Units 6-7 totaling 1,200 MW and put into operation in 2006.[1]

Units 1-3 (100 MW each) were retired in 2008 and demolished prior to 2012, as shown on Google Earth archives. Units 4-5 were demolished in 2012, as shown on Google Earth archives.[2]

Expansion

Guodian has proposed expanding the power station by two more units: Units 8 & 9 of 660 MW each.[3][4][5]

2016: 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.

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]
