Baganuur power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Mongolia and coal|
Baganuur power station is a proposed 700-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Baganuur area, Mongolia.
Two other power stations have been proposed at Baganuur, both associated with proposed Coal-to-Liquids projects. These projects are the Baganuur IGCC (POSCO/MCS) and Baganuur IGCC (Petrovis), both of which appear abandoned.

A May 2014 brochure for the Energy Mongolia International Conference & Expo refers to a 700 MW thermal power plant as one project for which international investment is being sought.
Bids for a coal-fired Baganuur Power Plant Project were held in 2014; the Government of Mongolia approved the Invest Mongolia Agency to supervise the Build-Operate-Transfer agreement, which was awarded to registered Mongolian company Baganuur Power LLC. The agreement duration is 25 years; four years of construction and 21 years of operation. A construction contract was awarded to China National Nuclear Corporation (China Nuclear Industry 22).
A groundbreaking ceremony was held on December 23, 2015. The project will include two supercritical coal-fired power generating units with capacity of 350 MW each. Total investment is estimated at US$1 billion.
According to a 2020 news article in news.mn, construction on the power station has stalled since 2018. The article said construction was planned to resume, although a date was not offered. The size of the plant may also be reduced to 400 MW.
