Background on Plant

Zhunge'er power station is a four-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 1,320 MW, completed between 2002 and 2007. It is known as Zhunge'er-2. The plant's first two units of 125 MW each, known as Zhunge'er-1, were commissioned in 1992-1993 and retired in 2013. The plant was originally owned by China Shenhua and CLP Group.[1][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]
