Shengli Dongying power station (中石化国电胜利发电厂) is a 1,040-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Shandong Province, China.

An additional 1,320 MW (中石化国电胜利东营热电公司) has been proposed, including plans for carbon capture and storage.

Background on Plant

The four existing coal-fired units of Shengli Dongying power station, totaling 1,040 MW (Phase I and II), were brought online between 1992 and 2001. The plant is owned by Sinopec.[1]

Description of Expansion

Phase III of the Shengli Power Plant – two 660 MW supercritical thermal power units - was approved by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) for construction in 2012. Unit 5 began construction in 2013, and is planned for completion around the middle of 2015.[1] Commissioning of unit 5 began in September 2015.[2]

Carbon capture

The space for a one million tonnes per annum CO2 capture plant has been reserved at the site of the No. 5 Unit. The CO2 capture facilities are expected to begin operation in 2017. The CO2 will be used for enhanced oil recovery at the Shengli oil field, the second largest oil field in China, located in the Yellow River delta near the Bohai sea shore.[1]

Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

In January 2017 China's National Energy Administration suspended over 100 planned and under-construction coal power projects in 13 provinces, including unit 6 of Shengli Dongying. It is unclear when or if the projects will be revived.[3]

Ownership

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]
