Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of Guodian Shangqiu Minquan power station, totaling 1,260 MW, were brought online in 2008. The plant was originally owned by China Guodian.[1]

Expansion

Guodian is currently planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a total planned capacity of 2,000 MW.[2]

However, with no updates since 2012, plans for the units appear to be abandoned.

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.[3][4] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[5]
