Background

The power station consists of the following units:[1]

  • Unit 1 - 110 MW - 1988
  • Unit 2 - 110 MW - 1989
  • Unit 3 - 110 MW - 1990
  • Unit 4 - 110 MW - 1998
  • Unit 5 - 660 MW - proposed
  • Unit 6 - 660 MW - proposed

Expansion

Two new units of 660 MW each have been proposed at the same location.[2][3][4]

In a 2013 presentation by NTPC to analysts, the project was not included in a list of "Projects Under Construction," nor was it included in a list of "Capacity Addition Scheduled in 12th Plan" (i.e. 2017).[5] However, in March 2014 it was reported that NTPC would place orders "in the current fiscal" for the boilers at the Tanda project to a joint venture between Larsen and Toubro and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, and the orders for steam turbine and generator to a joint venture between Alstom SA and Bharat Forge.[6]

As of April 2015 the units are listed as under construction.[7] Boiler erection began on Unit 5 in December 2015 and on Unit 6 in May 2016.[8][9] They have a proposed commissioning of 2019.[10]
