The power station consists of eight units that were built from 1991-2009. The first five units are subcritical technology (although unit 3 has been upgraded), and units 6-7 are ultra-supercritical. The plant was majority-owned by China Guodian.[1]


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.[2][3] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[4]
