Background

The plant comprises seven existing units:[1][2]

  • 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

Expansion

An additional 500 MW subcritical unit (Stage III) was proposed at the Singrauli Super Thermal Power Station in August 2011.[3]

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.[4]

A terms of reference for carrying out an EIA was issued on December 9, 2016.[5] In April 2018, NTPC said it planned to begin the tendering process for the power station.[6]
