The country’s largest power producer NTPC will lay the foundation stone for the second stage of the 2,320 MW Mouda plant in Maharashtra.
The Mouda project’s second stage has two units of 660 MW.
The foundation stone would be laid by Power Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia today, NTPC said in a statement.
“The project has two 500 MW units in stage one, of which one is already operational and the second is likely to come on stream this year,” it added.
Besides Maharashtra, electricity generated from the plant would be supplied to other States, including Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh.
“The coal for the project has been tied up with Mahanadi and Western Coal Fields and water from the Gosikurd Dam,” the statement said.
NTPC currently has an installed generation capacity of 39,674 MW.
