The project involves setting up of 2×660 MW (Stage-II) Super-Critical Coal Based Thermal Power Plant at village s Mouda, Kumbhari, Lapka, Koradi, and Rahli, in Taluk Mouda, in Nagpur District , in Maharashtra. 2×500 MW (Stage-I) is under construction. Land requirement shall be restricted to 1800 acres for both the Stages-I&II. Out of total land requirement, about 828 acres of land is partly single and partly double crop agricultural land. Double crop land portion shall be deleted after optimization to the extent possible. It is noted that the above project is under the bulk tendering programme to augment the power equipment manufacturing capacity in the country through energy efficient super critical technology with the purpose to have built-in phased manufacturing programme. Coal requirement will be 7.85 MTPA at 90 % PLF. Letter of assurance for supply of required coal from Mahanadi Coalfields Limited has been obtained vide their letter dated 11.12.2010. It is also noted that Mahanadi Coalfields Ltd. vide letter no. MCL/SBP/S&M/DT (OP)/2010/3041 dated 7.12.2010 addressed to NTPC Ltd have mentioned that the coal will be supplied from the operating mines of Mahanadi Coalfields Limited. High Concentration Slurry Disposal System shall be adopted. Quantify of fly ash to be generated will be about 2.77 MTPA. Water requirement will be restricted to 40 cusecs. Source of water will be from Ghosikurd Dam on Wainganga / Kanhnan River at a point, 24 Km from the site. Water linkage has been obtained from the Govt. of Maharashtra. Closed cycle cooling system with cooling towers will be installed.
