Background on Plant

Shenhua Group is constructing a 2 x 660 MW coal plant in Dajing.[1][2]

However, satellite imagery through May 2018 shows construction has been frozen since at least January 2016, with little progress on the project. It appears to be shelved.

Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

In 2016 China's National Energy Administration issued "scale control" (coal-fired capacity limits) on particular "sending out" locations that feed ultra-high voltage (UHV) long-distance power lines, including Inner Mongolia (Xilingong), Inner Mongolia (Ordos), Shaanxi, Ningxia, Shanxi, and Xinjiang.[3]

As of January 2017, the affected area includes this power station, which may be scaled down as a result.

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]
