A memorandum of understanding between Bangladesh Power Division and Siemens to build the plant was signed in November 2017.[2]

Initially expected to start running in 2020, construction has slowed down enough that a steering group was formed with representatives from the NWPGCL and Siemens to speed up the project. In addition, a land-based liquefied natural gas terminal will be built to supply fuel for the power plant.[2]
