Background on Plant

The two existing supercritical units of Guodian Zhuanghe power station, totaling 1,200 MW, were brought online in 2007. The plant is majority owned by China Guodian.[1][2]

Proposed expansion

In 2007 Guodian said it was pursuing two additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a total planned capacity of 2,000 MW.[1] However, there has been no news since 2007, and the project appears to be abandoned.


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]
