In June 2012, the Bangladesh Power Development Board signed three agreements with Orion Power to set up three private coal-fired power plants in Khulna, Chittagong, and Mawa, Bangladesh totaling 1,200 megawatt capacity. It was reported the Chittagong power station (Orion) would have a generating capacity of 282.67 MW.[1][2]

In April 2013, it was reported that the Chittagong project would be merged with Orion's 283 MW Khulna power station (Orion) into a single 565 MW plant at Khulna.[3] The Khulna power station (Orion) is also a cancelled project.
