Initially, the Bangladesh Power Development Board expected the plant to begin operation in 2016, beginning with simple cycle and following with combined cycle within a year. With delays due to problems with funding and with engineering, procurement and construction contractors, the operating date was pushed to September 2019. In December 2018, reports said it was only 22% completed.[6]

The plant achieved achieved commercial operation in 2021. [7] It is located in Parkul village, Nabiganj, a sub-district of Habiganj District, on the south bank of the river Kushiyara. The project is part of Bangladesh's plan to get reliable electricity to all residents by 2020.[8]
