In October 2016 it was reported Meghna Group inked deals with Chinese state-owned Power Construction Corporation (PowerChina) to produce 1,320MW (2 x 660 MW) of coal-fired electricity in Daudkandi in Comilla, at a cost of US$1.75 billion. The Chinese government will arrange the funding and the stake in the power plants will be mutually decided by the two parties. The proposals will be sent to Bangladesh Power Development Board and the power ministry for approval.[1]

However, there have been no further developments, and the plan appears to be shelved.
