Background on Project

China Guodian is planning to build a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 1,320 MW in Henan Province.[1][2][3][4]

Suspension

In March 2016 China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) released guidelines for regulating coal power development to crack down on the severe and growing coal power overcapacity crisis. 13 provinces were told to suspend new approvals through 2017, including Henan. For details, see China's 2016 Restrictions on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity.

2017: Plant cancelled

In December 2017 plans for the plant were cancelled.[5]

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.[6][7] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[8]
