Background on Plant

Yiwuling power station was a four-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 210 MW. The plant was completed between 1970 and 1974, and was retired in 2007-2008. In 2002, the power station was put under China Guodian. Guadian retired it to build Hebei Longshan power station under the policy of "shutting down small units to build big ones".[1][2]


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]
