Coal-fired expansion plan morphs into gas project

A February 2009 Ministry of Coal document indicated that Spectrum Power Generation were considering a second coal-based phase at the site of their existing plant. Stage II of the plant, the document stated, could be a 1,320 megawatt plant comprising two 660MW generating units. Coal for the project is indicated as being sought from Mahanadi Coalfields Limited, a Coal India subsidiary.[2] In July 2011 the project was still listed by the Ministry of Coal as a pending application.[3]

A 2010 document by Spectrum Power Generation indicates that the proposed project is now planned to be a 1,350 MW gas-fired project.[4] On its website, Spectrum also refers to the project as being a gas-fired power station.[5]
