Singrauli Super Thermal Power Station
Singrauli Super Thermal Power Station is a 2,000-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Uttar Pradesh, India, which is owned and operated by the National Thermal Power Corporation.
The undated satellite photo below shows the power station in Sonebhadra district.
- Unit 1 - 200 MW - 1982
- Unit 2 - 200 MW - 1982
- Unit 3 - 200 MW - 1983
- Unit 4 - 200 MW - 1983
- Unit 5 - 200 MW - 1984
- Unit 6 - 500 MW - 1986
- Unit 7 - 500 MW - 1987
An additional 500 MW subcritical unit (Stage III) was proposed at the Singrauli Super Thermal Power Station in August 2011.
In October 2016 NTPC submitted a pre-feasibility report to expand the power station by two supercritical units of 660 MW each. The proposal for an additional 500 MW unit appears to have been dropped.
