Background on Plant

Kangping is a 2 x 300 MW coal plant commissioned in 2008-2009 and owned by China Guodian. NDRC approval was received in April 2006. Unit 1 started-up in 2008, and unit 2 in 2009.[1]


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]
