Background on Project

Shenhua Group has proposed a four-unit coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 4,000 MW in Chongqing Municipality.[1]

Units 1-2 totaling 2,000 MW began operation in 2015.[2][3]

Proposed expansion

Two more units, Units 3-4 totaling 2,000 MW, has been proposed.[4][5][6]

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.


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.[7][8] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[9]
