IL&FS is developing a 3600 MW (2x600MW in Phase I) imported coal based Thermal Power Project in Tamil Nadu. The Phase I of the project (1200MW) would be utilizing sub-critical technology while Phase II (2400MW) would utilize supercritical boiler technology and would source coal from Indonesia/Australia/SA etc. The project would consist of a dedicated port/jetty with enabling infrastructure for import of 15-25 million tones of coal per annum along with other plants and machinery

IL&FS has acquired a mine in Indonesia, which will cater to the coal requirement for this project. All major clearances including environment clearance from MoEF has been obtained for this project. The debt financial closure for Phase I has been achieved in December 2009 with a consortium of 19 banks. The power generated would be sold under both long term Power Purchase Agreement and as merchant power. IEDCL has been appointed Project Development Advisor for the project

Nope. Tirukkuvalai Port is 40 MTPA capacity port and a 2000 MW power plant by Tridem. That's a different Project.

Okay, am planning to change the title and club all the power plants proposed in Tamil Nadu here..


----

Done. All these power plants together will have capacity of around 18,000 MW. This is less compared to the requirements in future.

Great compilation Kewl. TN will be no.1 if all these paper projects are commissioned by 2014. Hope golden period of TN comes back in power sector.

We can add more, wind power, hydel power and nuclear power projects too.

And present power capacity by various methods can be added in the top and updates regularly for easy reading.

I think if these projects are implemented, nagapatinam region will become the thermal reservoir ( energy reservoir) of TN..

Govt should also think of developing non conventional energy sources in a big way to cut the carbon emissions from the state.

TIMES NEWS NETWORK

Chennai: Merchant power plants will now have greater freedom to operate, as the state government, in deference to the order of the Tamil Nadu Electricity Regulatory Commission (TNERC), has decided to cancel ‘facilitation letters’ issued to 10 merchant power companies that are planning to set up coastal thermal power generation units. The government has also disbanded the high-powered committee constituted for issuing such letters. These letters had contained conditions that the regulator found violative of the law.
Merchant power plants are those that do not have an identified customer and sell power in the competitive wholesale market, taking on all the risks concerning investment and establishment. They need not have any power purchase agreement with a state-run utility.
The TNERC had ruled that the conditions contained in these ‘facilitation letters’ were ultra vires the provisions of the Electricity Act, 2003, and in particular, had held that Section 7 of the Act dispensed with the need for issuing licences for power projects, provided they complied with technical requirements.
Following this, the state cabinet, in its last meeting, decided to review the power policy and resolved not to interfere in the setting up of the merchant plants.
The orders disbanding the high-powered committed, headed by the chief secretary, and cancelling the facilitation letters were passed last week.
These letters issued by the energy department late in 2007 had stipulated certain conditions. Even though some conditions were modified the next year, eight of the 10 companies filed petitions before the Tamil Nadu Energy Regulatory Commission (TNERC) objecting to certain conditions.
According to TNERC officials, the conditions included stipulations that the merchant power plants should offer to sell 25% of power to the TNEB (to enable the state become a power hub for industrial growth and to bridge the widening supply gap) and pay a levy of Rs one lakh per MW annually as ‘Area Development Contribution’, forcing the private power producers to approach the TNERC.
As most of these merchant plants were planning for thermal generation of 1000 MW to 2000 MW along the TN coast, mainly in Cuddalore and Nagapattinam districts, the companies were unwilling to shell out several crores of rupees annually as area development contribution to the government.
Merchant power plants can now identify the land of their choice and directly apply for environmental clearances and go ahead with financial tie-ups for projects and coal supply. There would be no governmental interference. “If the power project promoters and TN government are willing they can voluntarily enter into a power purchase agreement,’’ said a TNERC official.

Koodankulam 1200 x 4 =4800 MW PM to sign deal next fortnight.
There is also a proposal to increase the number from 4 to 6. So totally 8 reactors will be hosted.

Nice to see many power project in already shining state

EZR road should be made 4 lanes.
Also I read a report that instead of many ports it is prudent to create couple of Mega ports in right location as per environmentalists. Hope govt will think about this.

Cheyyur UMPP and Cuddalore IL&FS power plants are both 4000 MW and supercritical technology! These two alone comes to 8000 MW. So far the list has come to 29,300 MW Lets dig up more projects

I wish the Marakkanam UMPP to see the light of the day soon.

Also, I've updated IL&FS Plant at Cuddalore - it is 10,000 MW with 4000 MW in Phase-I and 6000 MW in Phase-II So, the cumulative score goes up by 6k to 35,300 MW.

Kalpakkam gets new reactor core, to go live in 2011

TIMES NEWS NETWORK

Chennai: In a major milestone for the country in its nuclear power initiative, the main vessel of India’s first 500-MW Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR), being developed at the Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) at Kalpakkam, was installed on Saturday, marking a significant step towards completing the construction of the country’s first atomic power plant using a breeder reactor.

“The main vessel of the PFBR was installed on Saturday as the weather conditions were favourable. All the load tests and mock trials were completed successfully before the installation. There was a slight delay earlier due to bad weather. The vessel had to be lifted well above the civil structures and high wind can cause oscillation of the vessel while in and
ate problems for accurate lowering into the safety vessel. But with dry weather for the last three days, we decided to install the component,” Dr Baldev Raj, IGCAR director said.

The main vessel weighing 206 tonnes was moved from the assembly shop to the reactor site using a crawler crane in an operation that began at noon on Friday. The installation of the main vessel was completed on Saturday by 9am. The main vessel is the most critical component in the reactor and will hold the reactor fuel, grid plates and liquid sodium, which is used to cool the reactor. In June 2008, the reactor’s safety vessel was installed. With the completion of the most critical work, complementary civil construction will begin now. All components are ready.

Subsequently, pipelines would be erected and the coolant pipes filled with sodium before the reactor goes on stream. “We have tested the PFBR system repeatedly using nearly 1,000 tonnes of sodium. All regulatory clearances have been obtained for installation of the components,” he said. The 500-MW reactor is likely to go on stream in September 2011 and electricity generated from the reactor is expected to be supplied at a cost of Rs 3.22 per unit to many states, including Tamil Nadu. Baldev Raj said the IGCAR was working on the designs of six more fast breeder reactors.

Neyveli TPS II expansion, 500MW plant supposed to be commissioned in 2009. Don't know whether it is done!

Jayamkondam power plant by NLC 1000MW - 5700 crores investment
Neyveli TPS III power plant 1000MW - 8000 crores investment.
In-principle approval received from MOC in 10/2003 for a Refinery Residue based Thermal Power Plant of 500 MW at Chennai along with M/s. Chennai Petroleum Corporation Limited. The Advance Action proposal was sanctioned by GOI in February 2004 and action has been taken to engage a consultant for preparation of deatailed Feasibility Report.

Apart from this lot of captive power plants are coming up silently in cement plants in Ariyalur belt, sugar plants, JSW, Mecheri, Salem steel plant and TNPL, Pugalur/Karur.

And TN has exploited the hydro power resources, wind power generation is also increasing rapidly. It time for concentrating on taping the solar power/ solid waste, waves etc.,
