In 2015, Wuta Energy proposed building a 150 gas-fired power plant that will later expand to 300 MW. The first phase was initially scheduled to be finished by 2016.[2] Wuta missed that goal and in November 2016, the company had just chosen the contractor, China Machinery Engineering Corporation, to build the plant.[3]
