The project is that is proposed by Singareni Collieries, India's second largest coal mining company. It 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 Singareni Collieries had achieved financial closure for the $1.4-billion station, 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]

In March 2014 Singareni Collieries Company invited bids for construction of the 1200 MW power station.[6] Unit 1 is planned for commercial operation in December 2015 and unit 2 in March 2016.[7]

Phase II expansion

In March 2015 Singareni Collieries submitted an application to add an additional unit 3 of 600 MW.[8] The project was granted a terms of reference on May 27, 2015.[9]

According to Singareni Collieries, the Telangana government directed the company to set up the additional unit to address energy shortages in the state.[10]
