Reliance Power sponsored a 3 x 93 MW coal plant in Dahej, Gujarat. The contractor was BHEL. The coal plant - along with the Hazira power station (Reliance) - was being set up to meet the power requirements of Reliance's refinery projects at Hazira and Dahej. Units 1 and 2 were commissioned in 2016. Unit 3 was planned for 2017.[1]

Planet imagery showed that two additional units, presumably the third 90 MW (or 93 MW) coal-fired unit and a later proposed gas-fired unit at the same site, were completed between April 2016 and April 2018.[2]

According to Reliance Industries' 2021-2022 Integrated Annual Report, the Dahej power station had co-fired biomass with coal during the Fiscal Year 2021-2022.[3]
