In January 2013, it was reported that Mudajaya Group would start developing a 500 MW coal plant in the Mandalay region. The company described the 500 MW project as phase one. According to a source, “Myanmar has an open market policy and the government has no limit as to how big we can build the plant. Depending on fuel supply and use, the plant could get bigger.” Mudajaya had a 70 percent share in the special purpose vehicle while IJM Corp co-founder Datuk Koon Yew Yin was to own the rest. In 2012, both parties signed a memorandum of understanding with the Mandalay government to build two independent power plants in the Mandalay region and other areas. The feasibility study was expected to be completed around 2013, and was expected to be followed by a power purchase agreement and financial closure.
However, with no known updates since the 2013 announcement, the project appears to be deferred or abandoned.
