Godhna power station is a proposed 2,400-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.
