Background on Plant
In April 2016, Tajikistan ratified a concession agreement between the Government of Tajikistan and Malaysia’s HOS Powertech Sdn Bhd on construction of a coal-fired power plant in Isfara district of Sughd province. The company said it would conduct feasibility studies for construction of the 300 MW Shurab power plant and modernization of the Shurab coal field in Sughd’s Isfara district. The plant is scheduled for completion in 2019, at a cost of US$500 million.
In March 2018, HOS International Trading SDN BHD said it intended to submit a new version of the feasibility study for the project to the Tajik government in March 2018. HOS intended to implement the Shurab thermal power plant in a consortium with Chinese companies.
There have been no further developments since March 2018, and the project appears to be shelved.
