Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of Guodian Nanning power station, totaling 1,320 MW, were brought online between 2011 and 2012. The plant was originally owned by China Guodian.[1]

Description of Expansion

Guodian is currently planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, units 3-4, with a total planned capacity of 2,000 MW. Construction is planned by the end of 2015, and operation in 2017.[2]

However, there have been no developments on the units since 2013, and they appear to be abandoned.

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.


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]
