Tengri Holding proposed a 600 MW supercritical coal plant for Bayanjargalan in Tuv province, Mongolia. It would be fueled by a proposed open-cut thermal coal mine in central Mongolia, also sponsored by Tengri Holding.[1][2]

In August 2020, QT Vascular looked to acquire the entire interest in Tengri Coal and Energy (TCE) for US$1 billion in cash and new shares. The independent valuation was to take into account "all designs, permits and licences to build and operate a 600-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant." In addition, it would take into account "the executed agreements with a Chinese state-owned enterprise to provide 85 per cent debt financing for the construction of a power plant" and TCE signed an agreement with a New York venture capital firm to provide the rest of the funding for, among others, the remaining 15 per cent for the plant's construction.[3]

However, in November 2020, QT Vascular announced that the conditional sale and purchase agreement signed with the Mongolian mining and energy company had ceased.[4]

Without any known developments since 2018, the project appears to be shelved.
