KTPS stops issuing work order for expansion works

Koradi Thermal Power Station (KTPS) authorities have not issued work orders for preparatory work of the 2×660 MW expansion project following its cancellation by the state cabinet. A proposal has been sent to the Mahagenco head office in Mumbai to take a final decision.

A KTPS spokesperson said that some structures of the existing 2×210 MW units were overlapping with the site of the proposed units. “These structures had to be shifted for clearing the site for the new 660MW units. As per approval of the Mahagenco board, tenders worth Rs28.11 crore had been invited. They had been awarded but the work order had not been issued. Now the head office will take the final decision in this regard,” he added.

The preparatory works were being done through four tenders. The first included construction of a major store area, including a store shed, warehouse, stack yard and its roads and drains due to fouling of the major store of the 2×660 MW unit.
