Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of Longhua Yanji power station, totaling 400 MW, were brought online in 2010. The plant was originally owned by China Guodian.[1]

Description of Expansion

Guodian is planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a total planned capacity of 600 MW.[2][3]

With no developments on units 3 nor 4 since 2010, plans 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.[4][5] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[6]
