Background on Plant

Guodian Baoqing power station is a two-unit, coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 1,320 MW in Hunan Province. The plant was completed in 2012, and was originally owned by China Guodian.[1]

Unit 3 & 4 Expansion

The company plans to add two 1000 MW ultra-supercritical units at the same location. Named the "Sunshine Project," the new units will be a joint venture involving National Electric Power Company, Hunan Provincial Coal Industry Company, and Shaoyang City Construction Investment Management Company.[2]

However, with no developments since 2012, plans for units 3-4 appear 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.[3][4] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[5]
