Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of Guodian Huangjinbu power station, totaling 1,300 MW, were brought online in 2007. The plant was originally owned by China Guodian.[1]

Proposed expansion

Guodian (now National Energy Investment Group) 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 2015.[2][3][4]

The project was among 15 projects cancelled by China's National Energy Administration (NEA) in September 2016.[5]


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]
