Background on Plant

The first four coal-fired units of Shuangliao West power station, totaling 1,200 MW, were brought online between 1994 and 2000. The plant was originally owned by China Guodian.[1]

Description of Expansion

Two additional units have been proposed. Plans have been carried out for one additional 660 MW unit (Unit 5), which went under construction in 2013,[2][3] and began commercial operation in 2014.[4]

The second expansion unit (Unit 6) has been cancelled.[5]


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]
