Background on Project

According to a World Resources Institute report (2012), China Guodian (now National Energy Investment Group) was planning to build a coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 600 MW in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.[1]

A bid was put out for a 600 MW power plant in Hexigten (Keshiketeng) for construction in 2009.[2]

However, there have been no reports of further activity to develop those plans, and they appear to be abandoned.

Ownership

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]
