Background on Project
Progress on the power station stopped in 2016 due to lack of investment and dim market prospects. In January 2017, it was reported the plant was sponsored by a consortium led by Doof Holding Group and HNA Group, who said they plan to revive the project. The power plant is a captive one for a petrochemical project.
As of January 2022, with no known developments in more than four years, the project is presumed shelved or cancelled.
