Background on Plant

In 2011 it was reported that China Guodian and China National Tobacco Corporation were working together to develop a 2,000 MW power station in Ordos City.[1][2][3] The power station was planned for operation in 2018.[4]

The project was permitted in July 2016.[5] Construction began in October 2018. Operation is planned for 2020-2021.[6]


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.[7][8] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[9]
