Background

On May 31, 2016, the Mongolia Minister of Energy signed an investment and electricity sales and purchase agreement for the Buuruljuut coal mine and an associated 2 x 300 MW coal plant, the Buuruljuut power station. The project is sponsored by Bodi International Group and Power China Resources, and is planned for Bayanjargalan District.[1]

The bankable feasibility study for the project was completed in 2018.[2] In December 2018 it was reported that Bodi International LLC signed a US$566 million agreement with Sinosteel for the coal mine and coal plant.[3]

In August 2020, Mongolia's energy minister visited the proposed Buuruljuut coal mine site. The mine is expected to produce 1.2 to 5 million tons of coal per year.[4]

In March 2022, the power project was mentioned among those to be developed by the Energy Ministry.[5] A Mongolian Investment Conference also listed the power station in August 2022.[6]
