Background on Project

China Guodian is planning to build a coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 2,000 MW in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The project feasibility study began in 2011.[1][2][3][4]

2016: Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

Due to new restrictions announced during 2016 by the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission, further capacity expansions at this location appear to be on hold or cancelled. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.

2019: Project revived

In December 2019 it was reported that an EIA had been submitted for the project.[5]

In September 2020, the plant was permitted for construction.[6] The location of the plant has not been determined by the end of 2020, but will be 1.1 kilometers away from Hesi Gewula South Open Pit Coal mine, which will also be its integrated coal supplier.[7][5]


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.[8][9] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[10]
