Background on Plant

Bulian power station is a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 1,320 MW in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The plant was completed in 2013, and is owned by China Guodian.[1][2]


In 2014 China Guodian said it was planning an additional 2 x 1,000 MW at the power station.[3]

Nothing became of the proposal until January 2021, when it was reported the 2 x 1,000 MW coal project was being revived to back up the use of solar power.[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]
