Changxing Island power station was a proposed two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 700 MW in Liaoning Province by China Guodian. The project would supply power to the island's industrial park.[1]

However, the top petrochemical company in the park went bankrupt in 2014, and the project was abandoned.


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]
