Background on Project

In 2008 construction was approved for a 4 x 600 MW Baorixile power station in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.[1]

Units 1-2 with a total capacity of 1,200 MW were completed in 2010.[2]

Units 3-4 were put out for construction bid in 2012.[3][4] However, there have been no further developments.

2016: Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

Due to new restrictions announced during 2016 by the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission, further capacity expansions at this location appear to be on hold or cancelled. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.

The proposed units 3-4 are therefore likely 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.[5][6] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[7]
