The 1,280MW Inn Din coal-fired power plant project in Ye Township, Mon State, has been suspended but not cancelled, Aung Than Oo, Deputy Minister of Ministry of Electric Power told Parliament.

The environmental and social impact assessments had also been postponed.

Mi Myint Than, MP for Ye Constituency in Mon State, had asked if the project was getting the green light.

The deputy minister said the project should not be cancelled altogether.

“We instructed the authorities to discuss the implementation of the 1,280MW coal-fired power plant being implemented near Inn Din village. Without getting the residents’ approval, the project and the surveys were suspended,” said Aung Than Oo.

He also said that 1,280 MW coal-fired power plant project, due to be implemented by the Toyo-Thai Corporation and Win Yaung Chi Oo would use an “ultra super critical system” in line with international standards.

He said a unit of electricity from the plant would cost between Ks100 and Ks115 with construction lasting about four years.
