Construction works on the power station started in 1966. The plant had five identical groups of 210 MW each and one of 235 MW, totaling a capacity of 1,285 MW. The units were commissioned from 1969 to 1978. Unit 1 (210 MW) was withdrawn from operation in 2012.
The power station was controlled by Termoelectrica's Electrocentrale Deva, a state-owned company. In June 2012 Mintia-Deva was put under the newly formed power company, Complexul Energetic Hunedoara, which also includes Paroseni Power Station and the functional mining sites that are part of the National Hard Coal Company (CNH).
