On May 31, 2016, the Mongolia Minister of Energy signed an investment and electricity sales and purchase agreement for the Buuruljuut mine and 2 x 300 MW power station, allowing construction to begin immediately. The project will be built in Bayanjargalan soum by Bodi International Group and Power China Resources. The estimated cost is one billion USD. Unit 1 is planned for 2019 and unit 2 for 2022.[1]

The power station is not mentioned among the planned power projects in the 2016-2020 Economic Recovery Program of Mongolia, which was approved by Parliament in November 2016.[2]

In April 2018, it was reported that Bodi International LLC signed a USD$450 million agreement on the Buuruljuut Thermal Power Plant project with the China State Construction Engineering company, as part of the Mongolia-China Business Forum held in Beijing on April 11, 2018.[3] The bankable feasibility study was completed in 2018.[4]

In December 2018, it was reported that Bodi International LLC signed a US$566 million agreement with Sinosteel for a 2 x 150 MW coal plant at Buuruljuut. China Business United Construction and Development Group plans to invest US$330 million in the coal plant. Plans also include a coal mine. In total, the plant is expected to cost about US$600 million.[5] The other investor is Bodi International LLC.[6]

In December 2019, China Energy Construction North China Institute and Sinosteel Equipment Co., Ltd. signed an engineering survey service contract for the project.[7]
