An Khánh - Bắc Giang power station, formerly known as Lục Nam power station, was formerly a two-unit, 100-MW coal-fired power plant project.[2][3][4]

In February 2016, An Khanh Group announced the formation of An Khanh - Bac Giang Thermoelectric Joint Stock Company, the entity that would build and own the plant. The provincial government gave An Khanh the go-ahead to survey the location.[5][6] In October 2016, the Prime Minister approved the increase of the project from 100 MW to 650 MW.[7][8]

In January 2017, the provincial government approved An Khanh Group's investment plans. The project would cost about $1 billion.[6]

In June 2019 the completion date for Unit 1 was delayed to 2023 in the Ministry Of Industry And Trade's report on the implementation of the revised seventh Power Development Plan (PDP7).[9]
