Background on Plant

Guodian Changyuan Jingzhou Cogeneration Co., Ltd., formerly known as Guodian Changyuan Shashi thermal power plant, was a four-unit plant originally built in 1964 with a total installed capacity of 140MW. The units were decommissioned in 2009, after the two current coal-fired units of the power station, totaling 600 MW, were brought online.[1][2][3]


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.[4][5] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[6]
