MP Adani power station

From Global Energy Monitor

MP Adani power station is a proposed 1320-megawatt (MW) coal plant in Madhya Pradesh, India.

Background

In March 2020, the Madhya Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission invited bids for setting up a 1,320 MW coal-based power plant in Madhya Pradesh. The plant comes with a promised domestic coal linkage. The bid was won by Adani Group on May 26, 2020. A power supply agreement dated in March 2020 was executed between MP Power Management Company Limited and Adani's Pench Thermal Energy Limited. The location for the plant is not mentioned,[1] although the Financial Express reported the location will be Pench.[2]

Adani Pench Power previously tried to set up the 1,320MW Pench Thermal Power Project in the Dhanora and Chausara villages of MP, but the plant faced significant public opposition that prohibited its construction. Adani Watch has expressed concern that Adani's 2020 bid for a 1320MW coal plant is merely a revival of the controversial Pench project.[3]
