Background on Plant

In 2012, it was reported that an unnamed Chinese company was planning to develop a 300 MW power plant for US$400 million in the Kampot Special Economic Zone (KSEZ).[1] According to information on the website of EIA consulting company CES, the plant will have 4 x 135 MW generators (total 540 MW), developed in two phases.[2]

In 2016, a preliminary contract was signed between Cambodian officials and Guodian Kangneng of China to build a coal plant in the Kampot Special Economic Zone, but the Chinese company ultimately went on to pursue the Han Seng power station in Cambodia, with no further mention of the Kampot proposal.

As of November 2020 there have been no updates on the proposal in over four years, and plans appear cancelled.
