The project was reported in January 2012 by Industry Monitor, which quoted an unnamed source: "The project is expected to come up with an outlay of Rs7,500 crore and a capacity to generate about 1,320 mw in the initial phase. The project would be based on environment friendly super critical technology, requiring about 1,000 acres. The project would depend purely on sea water and would avoid any burden on fresh water sources of the state. The project is still being finalised and we don’t see much of a problem in terms of environment clearances this time since it would come up on the coast and not interfere much with agriculture or irrigation."[1]
