Bander power project, also known as Pynampuram Thermal Power Project, is a 1320 (MW) coal-fired power project at Nellore district in Andhra Pradesh, India.
Bander power station is a proposed coal-fired power station in Andhra Pradesh, to be developed in three phases by Thermal Powertech Corporation. Phase I (2 units of 660 MW) and II (one unit of 660 MW) received an environmental permit in 2009, and Phase III (one unit of 660 MW) a terms of reference in 2010 for applying for one.
As of 2014 Thermal Powertech Corporation’s website only mentions the first phase (1320 MW). It appears that Phases II and III have been abandoned.
