The plant, located at Tandwa in Jharkhand, consists of three units and has a total capacity of 1,980 MW. The trial of 660 MW power generation and transmission at full load from the first unit of the plant was successful. The generated electricity was sent to the national grid. Regular production in the first unit is expected to start in February, 2023 after an expenditure of about Rs 150 billion. Modern technology is being used for generating power in the project. Along with Jharkhand, states including Bihar and West Bengal will benefit from the project.
