Godhna power station
Godhna power station is a proposed 1,600-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station sponsored by Karnataka Power Corporation in Chhattisgarh, India.
The project is located at Godhna village. The map below shows the location of Godhna but not the exact location of the project.
In February 2010 KPCL signed a memorandum of understanding with Larsen and Tubro (L&T). The project was planned in two phases, with 1600 MW in the first phase and 800 MW in the second phase.
According to reports in the fall of 2013, the project was facing "rough weather" as KPCL disassociated itself from its project partner Larsen and Tubro (L&T). The decision to separate came due to a decision by the government not to allow coal allocation to projects involving private firms.
In August 2014 the State Government said it planned to sign a fresh MoU with state-owned NTPC for implementing the project, described as 1,600 MW (2 x 800 MW). Under the proposed plan, Karnataka Power Corporation and NTPC would share power in the ration of 51:49. The Chhattisgarh Government had allotted 1,260 acres for the project, and spent Rs 210 crore for land acquisition.
