Background on Project

China Guodian is planning to build a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 1,320 MW in Guizhou Province. It is the relocated expansion project of Guiyang power station. The plant was reported as under construction in 2013, with a planned operation date of 2015.[1]

The plant was commissioned in 2016.[2]


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]
