The project involves expansion by addition of 3×660 MW (Phase-III) Super Critical Technology Coal Based THERMAL POWER PLANT. Environmental clearances for Phase-I (2×330 MW) and Phase-II (2×330 MW + 2×660 MW) were accorded on 13.08.2007 and 21.10.2008 respectively. Land required for Phase-III will be 198.20 ha. FGD shall be installed in Phase-III units. Coal used will be imported and domestic in the ration of 70:30. T. A long term coal linkage for 1980 MW (Phase-II) has been obtained from Mahanadi Coal Fields. Phase-I and Phase-II of the project is based on imported coal. Coal requirement for Phase-III will be 8.39 MTPA at 85 % PLF. Water requirement of 3,15,000 m3/hr for Phase-I, II & III and FGD would be met from sea water. The project is in Mundra SEZ. Stack height of chimney shall be 275 m. Cooling tower blow down and RO water reject will be utilized for FGD system. Marine EIA studies have been carried out by National Institute of Oceanography. Public hearing was conducted on 12.03.2010.
The project was considered for issuing Environment Clearance on Mar 19, 2010 and the Environment Clearance was issued on May 20, 2010
