Panaiyur coal terminal
The Panaiyur coal terminal is 12-14 million tonnes per annum captive coal terminal proposed by Coastal Tamil Nadu Power to facilitate the use of imported coal for the Cheyyur Ultra Mega Power Project. The company have proposed that coal for the proposed power station would be imported via a "captive port" proposed to be constructed near the village of Panaiyur, in Kancheepuram district, Tamil Nadu, India. The coal loader would be approximately 5 kilometres to the east of the main power plant location at Cheyyur. Coal would be transported from the port to the power station via a closed conveyor system.
