Background

The project consists of two 135 MW units.[1]

On its website the company states that on January 4, 2011 it signed a power purchase agreement for the sale of 35% of the power from the plant to the Government of Chhattisgarh.[2]

Unit 1 of the project was completed in December 2011. Unit 2 was completed in June 2012.[2][3][4]
