ACB (India) Ltd. The company states that the first 300MW unit will be commissioned is September 2013 and the second unit is December 2013. The proposed power station is located at Nawapara Village in the Raigarh district, Chhattisgarh in India.[1] The project has received environmental clearance and has tied up with South Eastern Coalfields Ltd for coal. In November 2011, the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract was awarded to BGR Energy Systems.[2] As of February 2015, the company's website continues to report that it has acquired 521 out of the 548 acres needed for the project. In light of the lack of activity in over four years, the project appears to be shelved.
