Background on Project

China Guodian is currently building a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 700 MW in Shaanxi Province. The project received its permit from the Environment Protection Ministry of China in 2012, one step away from the final NDRC permit needed before construction.[1][2][3]

However, there has been no news on the project since 2012, and no sign of construction. It appears to be cancelled.


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.[4][5] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[6]
