Background on Project

National Energy Investment Group and Xuzhou Mining Group own this 1,320-unit coal-fired power plant in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. (Earlier reports placed the size at 2,000 MW.)[1][2]

The plant was completing testing in 2015,[3][4] and was commissioned in 2016.[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.[6][7] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[8]
