Jafrabad power station
Jafrabad power station is a proposed 1,320-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Gujarat, India.
The map below shows Jafrabad taluk, Amreli district, Gujarat state, India the approximate location where the plant would be built.
Background on Plant
Sintex Power has proposed setting up a 2 × 660 MW super-critical coal-based power station, as well as a 400 MW gas-based plant, near the villages of Lunsapur, Mithapur, and Kagvadar, in Gujarat. The expected land requirement is 600 acres, and the coal requirement 6.36 million metric tons annually.
A draft Environmental Impact Assessment for the Lunsapur power station was released in 2012.
This project appears to be related to Lunsapur power station, which failed to progress after receiving a ToR in 2010. (The two projects are in the same town and are the same town. Lunsapur was sponsored by "Patel Energy"--Dinesh Patel is the chairman of Sintex Power.)
The project is not mentioned in the company's 2013-4 annual report, and as of May 2016 the project has not received environmental clearance.
As shown on videos posted on social media sites, citizens used the occasion of a public hearing on August 01, 2012 to demonstrate their opposition to the project.
