Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of Guodian Jiangnan power station, totaling 660 MW, were brought online in 2010. The plant was originally owned by China Guodian.[1][2][3]


The 2011 county government's annual report proposed expanding the power station by 2 x 1,000 MW,[4] but since then there have been no further developments, and the project appears 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.[5][6] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[7]
