The project was originally permitted as a 600 MW (2 x 300 MW) power station, according to the first Environmental Clearance issued October 28, 2009. [2] In December 2010 a new Environmental Clearance was issued for a 1200 MW (2 x 600 MW) project.[3] The project is under construction.[4]

In April 2011, it was reported that India's second largest coal mining company, Singareni Collieries (SCCL), had achieved financial closure for its $1.4-billion station in Adilabad district, Andhra Pradesh. It is expected to be operational in April 2014. Of the 1200 MW, 150 MW would be earmarked for SCCL's use and the remaining 1050 MW would be sold to AP Transco.[5]
