New Coal-Fired Power Station proposal
In late December 2006 the National Thermal Power Corporation, an Indian electricity generation company, announced that it "will be signing on 29th December 2006 a Memorandum of Agreement with Government of Sri Lanka and Ceylon Electricity Board for development of a 2X250 MW Coal based Power Project at Trincomalee in Sri Lanka. The project would be developed through a joint venture company between NTPC and Ceylon Electricity Board." For more details see Sampur power station.
