Bhavanapadu Thermal Power Project consists of two phases, each 1320 MW. The project is sponsored by East Coast Energy .

The project has been the target of multiple protests, resulting in two killings and halting of construction by the India government in 2011. The power station was listed as deferred in 2012.

According to project developer Athena Energy, “stage-I of the plant is expected to be commissioned in December 2015 and stage-II is expected to be commissioned in 12 months thereafter.”

According to a 2014 article, the India Cabinet Committee on Investment is considering financing a “1,320 MW Bhavanapadu Thermal Power Project”, but did not mention the additional 1320 MW, suggesting it may have been shelved.
