Hindupur power station
Hindupur power station is a proposed coal plant in Telangana, formerly Andhra Pradesh, India.
The map below shows the location of Hindupur, Mahaboobnagar district, the approximate location where the plant would be built.
Hindupur power station is a 1,320 megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station which has been proposed by Sheshadri Power & Infrastructure to be built at Hindupur near Raichur, Mahaboobnagar, Telangana, India. A Coal India document referred to the project as being proposed to be 1200MW comprising two 600MW units.
While the company and the plant proposal date back to approximately 2008, little is known about the company or the proposal. The company does not have a website and a client listing of various coal and power companies by the consultancy company BARSYL lists Sheshadri Power & Infrastructure's email contact as being via a gmail account.
The company has not applied for an environmental permit, and the project may have been abandoned.
