Background on Project

Shenhua Group is has announced plans to build a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 2,000 MW in Jiangsu Province. The plant was scheduled to be completed in 2017.[1][2][3]

However, with no developments since 2013, the project appears to be 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.[4][5] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[6]
