As of November 2018, Tajín Energía was planning to spend $850 million on the project -- $260 million allotted for the acquisition of generation equipment, $480 million for construction, and $110 million for financing.[5] Once operating, the power station was expected to have a useful life of 25 years.[5] The power plant would connect to the Sur de Texas-Tuxpan Gas Pipeline via a 150-meter, 185 MMPCD spur pipeline.[5] The project received environmental approval from SEMARNAT in 2018.[6]

According to investor disclosure documents published in 2021 and 2022, the project was still in the preliminary engineering phase.[7][8]
