Background on Plant

China Guodian (now National Energy Investment Group) has proposed a 2 x 1,000 MW ultra-supercritical coal plant in Datong, Shanxi province.[1]

With no developments since March 2017, the project appears to be shelved.


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.[2][3] The merger was completed on November 28, 2017.[4]
