Background on Project

China Guodian was planning to build a waste coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 600 MW in Shaanxi Province.[1][2] The project has been cancelled.[3]


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]
