Background on Project

Shenhua Guohua Elec Power Corp & Jiangsu Guoxin Investment Group have built a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a capacity of 1,320 MW (2 x 660 MW) in Jiangsu Province.[1][2]

They went into operation in 2011.[3][4]

Proposed expansion

Two more units, each 1000 MW, have been announced.[5]

However, with no developments since January 2015, the project appears to be cancelled.


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]
