Background on Plant

Panshan power station is a four-unit coal-fired power station totaling 2,260 MW. The power station consists of two phases owned by two different companies, although they are located in the same location. Phase I of 2 x 530 MW was commissioned in 1994-1996 and was originally owned by Shenhua Group. Phase II of 2 x 600 MW was commissioned in 2005 and is owned by China Datang.[1][2][3][4]


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.[5][6] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[7]
