Background

In March 2019 Hong Kong-based Kaisun Holdings signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with China Energy Engineering Group (CEEC) and Australian firm Cavcorp to build the plant in the Hunter Economic Zone.[1][2] As of May 2021, there have been no updates on the project, and it appears to be shelved.

CEEC Debarment by World Bank

In September 2019 the World Bank debarred CEEC from participating in World Bank projects for 20 months because of fraud committed by CEEC in connection with the Lusaka Transmission and Distribution Rehabilitation Project in Zambia.[3]
