Tori power plant
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of India and coal.|
The Tori power plant is a 1,980-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station under construction in Jharkhand, India, by Essar Energy.
The map below shows the location of the construction site in Tori village, according to Wikimapia.
The Tori project will be a captive pit-head coal-fired power plant, comprising two generation units of 600 MW capacity each, located in Latehar district, Jharkhand. The company states that coal for the project will be sourced "from the Chakla and Ashok Karkata captive coal blocks owned by the company".
In late 2011 a company spokesman told The Times of India that "construction work for the first phase has already started and it is going on in full swing. If things move smoothly, the first phase of 600MW will be commissioned by late 2012."
According to a September 2012 status report by the Central Electricity Authority, the first unit of 600 MW will be commissioned in June 2014 and the second unit in September 2014.
