Coal linkage is achieved with South Eastern Coalfields Limited.[1]

Installed capacity[edit]

The Project was originally envisaged to be constructed in three development phases, but only two of the three phases have been approved for construction.

The first phase consists of 2 units with a generation capacity of 600 MW each. First unit was commissioned in February 2014 and, as of June 2014, the second unit is expected to complete in October 2014.[2]

The second phase consists of 2 units with generation capacity of 660 MW each. These units would be super critical thermal plants. As of December 2014, construction of phase two had not yet started.[3]
