Angren power station is a 422-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

Background on Plant
The Angren power station is owned by state joint stock company Uzbekenergo. The power station originally consisted of eight units of 52 to 68 MW each. The first unit was commissioned in 1957, and the eighth in 1963.
In September 2012, Uzbekenergo signed a contract with China's Harbin Electric International Company for construction of a 130 to 150 MW unit at the power station, planned for operation in 2016. Total project cost is US$242.6 million, financed by Uzbekenergo (US$75.1 million) and a loan from the Chinese Ex-Im Bank (US$165.6 million). The new unit will replace the first four units of the plant.
Construction on a new 150 MW unit began in 2014.
The new 150 MW unit was reported as completed in August 2016. This leaves the 150 MW unit and four 68 MW units.
