Background on Plant

The two units of Ma'anshan-1, totaling 250 MW, were commissioned in 1991 to 1992 and retired in 2007. The four existing coal-fired units of Ma'anshan-2 power station, totaling 1,320 MW, were brought online between 1995 and 2006. The two units totaling 1320 MW (2 x 660 MW) of Ma'anshan-3 were built in 2012. The plant was originally owned by WEnergy and Anhui Province Energy Group.[2][3][4]


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.[5][6] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[7]
