Background on Plant

In 2011, it was reported that China Guodian planned to build a 2,000 MW coal plant in Yonghou County, Shaanxi Province.[1] Further details are not known, and the absence of subsequent reports on the project suggests that it has been shelved.


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.[2][3] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[4]
