Background on Project

Shenhua Group is currently planning to build a coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 2,000 MW in Guangdong Province.[1]

The preliminary feasibility study was completed in 2012.[2][3][4][5]

However, there have been no news on the project since 2013. It appears to be abandoned.


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]
