MAHAGENCO to set up 2 X 800 MW power plant in Umred

Project report sent for environmental clearance

The Maharashtra State Power Generation Corporation (MAHAGENCO) is planning to set up two thermal power units, each of 800 megawatt (MW), at Umred. The proposal has been sent for environmental clearance, said state power and excise minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule. Follows the directive issued by the Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) to scrap all thermal power units which are more than 25-years-old, MAHAGENCO has chalked out plans to expand its capacity. The company has identified sites at Gokul and Piraya owing to their proximity to Nagpur from where waste water can been utilised for the proposed power stations.
