Project News:

The Telmen Thermal Power Plant, which was initially referred to as the Mogoin gol power station, was a 100-megawatt coal-fired power station under development in Western Mongolia.


In 2009, the project was described as a US$110 million, 60 MW coal-fired power station that was under construction and scheduled to be commissioned by early 2012. The power station is a Build, Own Transfer project which is being financed by private companies.


In December 2009, the Yuanda Group and New Asia Mining Group announced that they had signed a contract with the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy, Mongolia to construct a 2 x 30 MW power station near the Mogoin gol coal mine in northwestern Hovsgol Province. The Chinese company, CMEC Corporation, was a contractor for the construction work. Later reports refer to a 2 x 50 MW plant. The sponsor's website lists the following milestones:

In December 2013, it was reported that construction would start soon and take 18 months. The sponsor's website stated that "the company entered into the Investment with a partner company in China" and "is in active discussions with international investment banks and private equity firms. Investors who are interested in the project are currently finalizing due diligence of the project."


In 2015, the power station was reported as under construction.


In December 2016, HBEC signed with SEPCO Electric Power Construction Corporation (SEPCO) to provide survey (technical service) and design for the plant.


Construction was ongoing in February 2017. It was planned for 2023.


In April 2018, Henan Senyuan Electric Co. of Henan Senyuan Group Co. won a US$182 million engineering, procurement and construction contract with Mongolia’s New Asia Group Co. for the 100-MW facility’s construction. New Asia Group was expected to develop, own and operate the plant. China Export & Credit Insurance Corp. (Sinosure) would provide risk coverage for the project, with the contractor set to raise funds worth 85 percent of the contract price through supplier credit. The contract marked Henan Senyuan’s "first large-scale order in the international market". The firm would procure Chinese equipment for use in the project.


Satellite data from Planet shows some construction progress from 2016 to 2018, and seemingly little change at the site from 2018 to 2021. Imagery from late 2021 shows no changes at the presumed site.
