Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of Tianjin Northeast power station, totaling 660 MW, were brought online in 2009. The plant is owned by China Guodian and Jinneng Investment.[1]

Proposed expansion

In 2013 Guodian and Jinneng Investment said they are planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a total planned capacity of 700 MW.[2]

With no developments since 2013, plans for units 3-4 appear 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]
