According to a July 2014 report, Dong Fang Electric Corporation (DEC) was planning to set up two coal plants with a capacity of 220 MW each at Port Qasim, Karachi. Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah welcomed DEC for signing the accord with J-Energy/Sino-Sindh Resources Ltd (SSRL) and offered administrative support and attractive incentives. The project would be based on Thar coal, and was targeted for completion by the end of 2017 or early 2018.[1]

There have been no further reports on this project since July 2014. It appears to be abandoned.
