In August 2019, Shandong Power Construction III signed an EPC contract for a 3×50 MW coal-fired power station project in Djibouti.[1]

The proposed coal plant would be financed as part of the country’s deep economic relationship with China, and is now in question following China’s commitment to end overseas coal financing. The project is also in conflict with Djibouti’s aims to pursue 100% renewable energy.

With no apparent updates as of September 2023, this project was presumed cancelled.
