China Shenhua was established in Beijing in November 2004, and was listed on the HKEx in June 2005 and on the SSE in October 2007. The Group is principally engaged in the production and sale of coal and electricity, railway, port and shipping transportation, and coal-to-olefins businesses.
The Group owns high-quality coal resources in Shendong Mines, Zhunge’er Mines, Shengli Mines, Baorixile Mines, etc.. In 2022, the Group realised commercial coal production of 313.4 million tonnes and the sales of coal of 417.8 million tonnes.
The Group controls and operates high-capacity clean coal-fired power generators with great parameters, and the Group controlled and operated power generators with an installed capacity of 40,301 MW by the end of 2022, with a total power output dispatch of 179.81 billion kWh in 2022.
The Group controls and operates a network of concentric transportation railways around the major coal production bases in western Shanxi, northern Shaanxi and southern Inner Mongolia and the “Shenshuo – Shuohuang Line”, a major channel for coal transportation from western to eastern China, as well as Huanghua-Dajiawa Railway, a new energy channel in Bohai Rim, with total railway operating mileage reaching 2,408 km. The transportation turnover of the self-owned railway reached 297.6 billion tonne km all year.
The Group also controls and operates a number of ports and terminals (approximately 270 million tonnes/year shiploading capability in aggregate), such as Huanghua Port, owns the fleet of ships with approximately 2.18 million tonnes of deadweight capacity and conducts coal-to-olefins projects with approximately 0.6 million tonnes/year of production capacity.
The integrated operation mode of “production-transportation (railway, port and shipping)- conversion (power generation and coal chemical industry)” formed by the Group on the basis of coal products has the advantages of complete chain, high efficiency, safety and stability, and low-cost operation. The Group’s technology in coal exploitation and safety production has secured a leading position in the global market, and that of clean coal-fired power generation and heavy-haul railway transportation has secured a leading position in the domestic market.
