It has an installed capacity of 840 MW. The generating units of the power plant are very old and are operating at around 10% PLF, generating about 110 MW, daily.

As of April 2015, there is plan to float a joint venture company with National Thermal Power Corporation holding 74% and Jharkhand government holding 26%. The new company will set up a 4000 MW (800 MW × 5) Patratu Super Thermal Power Project which will utilize 1500 acres out of 6300 acres available with the existing power plant.[2]
