The first phase of the project will supply 1787 Crore units of electricity to Odisha and other states.In addition to higher efficiency, this power plant is equipped with latest environment friendly designs of Flue Gas Desulphurisation (FGD) for SOx control, Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) for NOx control, 10% eco-friendly biomass co-firing, solid waste management and Effluent Treatment System.
This project would generate huge employment opportunities, both during construction and operation phases of the station. Apart from direct employment, a lot of indirect employment opportunities will be generated by this project. This Project will significantly boost socio-economic development transforming the lives of people in the region.This project is a standing example of Atmanirbhar Bharat with indigenous equipment and an apt example of fulfilling Hon’ble Prime Minister’s vision of establishing more pit head thermal power stations in mission mode owing to its inherent benefits.
