An earlier proposal was for setting up 4 × 660 MW coal-based plants, but was later reduced to 2 × 800 MW units covering 1350 acres. The projected coal requirement is 7.5 million tonnes a year (MTPA), with plans to obtain the coal from the Talaipalli coal block. Water requirement of 4675m3/hr will be sourced from the Narmada river through a pipeline at a distance of about 30 km from the project site.[1]

Construction began in March 2014.[2]

The project has a proposed commissioning date of 2018-2019.[3][4][5]

Unit 1 was commissioned on October 13, 2018.[6]
