Gadarwara Super Thermal Power Project
The Gadarwara Super Thermal Power Project is a 1,600-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station under development by NTPC in Madhya Pradesh, India.
The undated satellite photo below shows the plant in Gadarwara tehsil.
An earlier proposal was for setting up 4 × 660 MW coal-based plants, but was later reduced to 2 × 800 MW units covering 1350 acres. The projected coal requirement is 7.5 million tonnes a year (MTPA), with plans to obtain the coal from the Talaipalli coal block. Water requirement of 4675m3/hr will be sourced from the Narmada river through a pipeline at a distance of about 30 km from the project site.
Construction began in March 2014.
Unit 1 was commissioned on October 13, 2018.
