Bodal captive coal plant
The Bodal captive coal plant is a proposed 120-megawatt captive coal-fired power station in Gujarat, India.
The map below shows the power station site based on the EIA report.
In February 2019, Bodal Chemicals submitted a pre-feasibility study for a 2 x 60 MW captive coal plant. The plant is planned to fuel a proposed chemical plant for dyes.
In January 2020, the EIA was released for both the chemical plant and coal plant.
The company's 2020-21 annual report stated: "We are investing ~ Rs 4,000 Million in a greenfield project at Saykha, Gujarat which will increase our capacity of Specialty Benzene Downstream Products by ~78,960 MTPA and Sulphuric Acid & its derivatives by ~340,000 MTPA. We have already started the work at the site and are expected to complete by end of Q3FY23."
As of January 2023, some development was apparent in Planet satellite imagery, although it was unclear if the work was related to the captive power station. There were no known permitting updates. The power station was presumed under construction.
