Background on Project

China Guodian was planning to build a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 2,000 MW in Jiangxi Province.[1][2]

However, with no developments since 2012, the project appears to be 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.[3][4] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[5]
