Background on Plant
Guixi power station is a four-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 1,880 MW in Jiangxi Province. The first four units, totaling 500 MW, were retired in 2008-2009.
Units 5 & 6, each with a capacity of 300 MW, were completed between 2005 and 2006. The most recent two units (7 and 8) were built as "great pressure on small" projects, with Unit 8 completed in 2011, a year earlier than Unit 7. The units are each 640 MW. The plant was originally owned by CPI.
In July 2015, China Power Investment Corporation (CPI) and State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation (SNPTC) merged to become State Power Investment Corporation (国家电力投资集团), one of the five largest state-owned electricity producers in the People's Republic of China.
