Yadadri thermal plant likely to be operational next year

K. Chandrasekhar Rao, the chief minister of Telangana, inspects the Yadadri thermal power station's construction. The project will probably be put into service in September of next year.

According to reports, the 4,000 Megawatt power plants will be the largest thermal plant ever built for the public sector. The plant is being built in the Nalgonda district's Damarcherla mandal at an estimated cost of Rs 299.92 billion. Once this project is completed, officials anticipate Telangana will have no more power shortages.

The TRS administration is eager to commission the esteemed project before the state's Assembly elections, which are set for December 2023.

The contract for building the super critical plant has been awarded to Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL).

There will be five 800 MW units in the power plant. According to representatives of Telangana State Power Generation Corporation (TS Genco), the first unit will begin producing in December of the same year and the other two units in 2024.

Genco states that project work is actively underway. Approximately 62% of the work has already been finished. In the first two units of stage I, the completion rate is much greater.

This is the third thermal power plant built since Telangana state's creation. In a record-breaking 46 months, Genco built the 800 MW Kothagudem thermal plant. 2019 saw the commissioning of this project. A 1080 MW Bhadradri plant was subsequently built in the Bhadradri Kothagudem district close to Bayyaram.

The National Green Tribunal's orders, according to Genco officials, won't have an impact on the construction project.

The NGT suspended the project's environmental clearance last month, citing uncertainty regarding coal linkages and the project site's proximity to the Amrabad Tiger Reserve.

However, the NGT has given Genco nine months to have the project reevaluated by the Expert Appraisal Committee in the cited aspects and receive a fresh clearance from the union ministry of environment and forests. During this time, Genco is permitted to continue with the power station's construction work as long as the plant has not been installed and the project has not been commissioned.
