Xinjiang Midong power station is a two-unit waste-coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 600 MW in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. The plant was completed in 2010, and was originally owned by Shenhua Group.[1][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]
