Gadarwara Super Thermal Power Project
The Gadarwara Super Thermal Power Project is a proposed 1,600-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Madhya Pradesh, India. The project has been proposed by NTPC.
The map below shows Gadarwara tehsil, the location where the plant would be built.
An earlier proposal was for setting up 4 × 660 MW coal-based plants, but was later reduced to 2 × 800 MW units covering 1350 acres. The projected coal requirement is 7.5 million tonnes a year (MTPA), with plans to obtain the coal from the Talaipalli coal block. Water requirement of 4675m3/hr will be sourced from the Narmada river through a pipeline at a distance of about 30 km from the project site.
Construction began in March 2014.
