According to para. 1.7, page 20 of Technical Product Specification https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/boardsandkits/NUC6i7KYK_TechProdSpec.pdf , this NUC is equipped with USB type 3.0 ports with rated current 900 mA only (except the yellow charging port with 1.5 A current rating). So, you should not use this port as power supply to your 2A monitor.

Power Delivery is an optional feature of the USB-C specification. The NUCs do not support this optional feature. As Leon noted, only the power required by the USB specification is supported (except for the yellow charging port).
