Tata Power alters technology for 2000 MW plant

In the backdrop of a serious threat posed to the wildlife ecosystem and protests from environmentalists, Tata Power has decided to change the technology of its proposed 2000 MW power plant at Naraj Marthapur in India from coal-based to gas-fired plant.

The project had hit a roadblock owing to its proximity to the Chandaka-Dampada wildlife sanctuary. The plant site was located within a distance of only 1.5 km of the sanctuary and wildlife clearance was mandatory for any project to be located within 10-km radius of a national park or wildlife sanctuary.

Green activists had raised serious concerns over the impact of large scale fly ash generation from the coal-based power plant on the wildlife of the area.
