In April 2017, J-Power submitted plans to Quang Ngai provincial leaders to construct a coal plant in Dung Quat Economic Zone (DQEZ) in two phases. Phase I would be an ultra-supercritical coal plant with a capacity of 2,400 MW, which would begin operating in 2028. Phase II would be an IGCC coal plant with a capacity of 2,000 MW that would begin operating in 2030. The plant would use coal imported from Australia, Russia, and Indonesia, as well as domestic coal.

According to Dang Ngoc Dung, vice chairman of Quang Ngai provincial People's Committee, J-Power must submit additional information concerning use of land, total investment capital, number of workers, and environmental protection commitments prior to the beginning of a pre-feasibility survey.[1]

Since the coal-fired projects were announced, a new plant to build 4 750-MW gas-fired plants in the DQEZ has been announced.[2] As of May 2019 there had been no further news about the coal-fired projects and they appear to be shelved.
