TN to get first supercritical power station at Rs 4,956 crore

Tags: Power
As a part of measures to step up power generation in Tamil Nadu, Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa today laid the foundation stone for setting up a 660-MW supercritical power station at an investment of Rs 4,956 crore.

"This is the first supercritical thermal power station to be established in Tamil Nadu," an official release said.

She laid the foundation stone for station through a video conference facility, it said.

Jayalalithaa had announced in the assembly last year that a supercritical power station would be set up that would consume less coal for generating more power.

At a function held at the secretariat today, Jayalalithaa presented the work order to the Lanco Infra Tech Executive Chairman L Madhusudhan Rao, it said.
