China Shenhua Energy Co. Ltd. engages in the production and sale of coal, railway and port transportation of coal-related materials, as well as power generation and sales. It operates through the following business segments: Coal Operations, Power Operations, Railway Operations, Port Operations and Shipping Operations. The Coal Operations segment engages in producing coal from surface and underground mines and sells coal to external customer and the power segment. The Power Operation segment uses coal, sourced from the coal mining segment and purchased from external suppliers, to generate electric power for sale to external power grid companies and to the coal mining segment. The Railway Operations segment engages in providing railway transportation services to the coal mining segment and external customers. The Port Operations segment engages in providing shipment transportation services to the power segment, the coal mining segment and external customers. The company was founded on November 8, 2004 and is headquartered in Beijing, China.
China Shenhua Energy is a Chinese state-owned coal company, which handles the mining, production and transport of coal as well as power generation. Besides coal mines and power plants, the company also runs railways and ports to transport coal. In size it is one of the largest companies in China, and is one of the world's largest coal firms. Its output and capital investment are widely monitored in and outside China as important indicators of the Chinese economy.
The company was established in 2004, and its parent firm is Shenhua Group, a large enterprise under direct control of the government. The company's actions tend to reflect government policies. The Chinese Communist Party has the power to pick the company's top officials.
Environmental protection is a major challenge facing the company. China relies on coal for 70% of the electricity it generetes, but coal is also a key source of air pollution. Against this backdrop, China Shenhua Energy is under pressure to introduce state-of-the-art power facilities, including ultrasupercritical power generation systems and integrated coal gasification combined cycle systems, so costs will likely increase in the short term. The company must brace itself for lower coal demand, as the Chinese government aims to reduce dependence on coal-fired power generation over the medium and long term.
China Shenhua Energy regards chemicals as a new source of revenue. It is already producing polyethylene and polypropylene. The company aims to complement its coal business, which is vulnerable to price fluctuations, by nurturing a high-end chemicals business.
