Background on Project

China Guodian is currently building a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 700 MW in Hainan Province. The plant is scheduled to be completed in 2015.[1][2][3]

Unit 1 completed a trial operation in August 2015,[4] and unit 2 in September 2015.[5] [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]
