Hamirpur power station
Hamirpur power station is a proposed 600-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Chhattisgarh, India.
The map below shows Hamirpur and Jobra villages, where the plant is being developed.
Jayaswal Neco Industries Limited (JNIL) has formed a subsidiary company named Raigarh Energy Limited (REL) to develop the Hamirpur thermal power plant at Raigarh, Chhattisgarh. The estimated project cost is Rs. 3337.26 crores.
Since 2011, there have been no reports of further progress on the project, and there is no mention of it on the Jayaswal Neco website. It appears the project has been shelved or abandoned.
A video posted on the India Environmental Portal shows testimony at a contentious public hearing on September 23, 2011. Additional videos from the hearing are posted here.
