Bhadravati power station (Ispat)
Bhadravati power station (Ispat) is a proposed 2,000-megawatt (MW) coal plant in Maharashtra, India.
The map below shows the proposed project site in Chandrapur district.
In an interview with NDTV, Ispat Industries senior executive Atulya Mittal said that given the power shortage in the country, the company had decided to fast-track the project and was looking for a strategic partner. According to Mittal, the company still had the original coal linkage.
According to a 2010 report in the Times of India, Ispat Group purchased 530 hectares of land after keeping the plans on hold since the 1990s. A report in the Financial Express placed the size of the project at 2000 MW.
As of 2014 the project has not received environmental clearance, and may have been cancelled.
