No, it is not possible to charge either system through the USB-C port. You must use the supplied PSU for the laptop via the slim power port.

There is however https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories-and-monitors/top-tech/Thunderbolt-WS-230W-dock-US/p/40AN0230US , which has a combined power/Thunderbolt-3 plug in one cable.

 

This works fine, even though quite expensive and the cable from the dock to the laptop is rather short.

It is possible to purchase combined power/TB cable separately

It is compatible with non workstation version of a dock

 

230 watt psu is requiried ( 170 may work depending on exact configuration )

 

Non-worstation dock may come with 135 watt, which is insufficient
