Background on Project

China Guodian was planning to build a coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 6,000 MW in Shaanxi Province.[1][2]

However, there have been no recent reports on the coal project, and 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.[3][4] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[5]
