Background on Plant

Huozhou power station is a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 1,200 MW in Shanxi Province. The first four units, totaling 400 MW, have been retired. Units 5 & 6, totaling 1,200 MW, were completed in 2012. The plant was originally owned by China Guodian.[1][2]


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]
