Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of Chengdu Jintang power station, totaling 1,200 MW, were brought online in 2007. The plant is owned by China Guodian.[1]

Description of Expansion

Guodian is currently planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a total planned capacity of 2,000 MW. The new units are scheduled to be completed in 2016.[2][3][4]

Work on the project was halted in June 2015, due to a lack of need. It is unclear if the project will be revived.[5]

In September 2016 the power station was among 15 projects cancelled by China's National Energy Administration (NEA).[6]


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.[7][8] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[9]
