Maithon Right Bank Thermal Power Station
The Maithon Right Bank Thermal Power Station is a 1050-megawatt (MW) project owned by Maithon Power Ltd. in Jharkhand, India.
The undated satellite photo below shows the power station in the town of Maithon, Dhanbad district.
Maithon Power is a joint venture company by Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC) and Tata Power. (DVC also refers elsewhere on its website as the project being a 1000MW project). The project is on the right bank of the Barakar River in Dhanbad District of Jharkhand, India.
Water for the project comes from the Maithon Reservoir on River Barakar.
However, as of August 2015 the expansion has yet to receive environmental permits, and appears to be deferred or abandoned.
