Meenakshi Energy Thermal Power Project

Meenakshi Energy Thermal Power Project is a 300-megawatt (MW) coal plant promoted by Meenakshi Energy and GDF Suez. It was completed in 2012 and 2013 in Andhra Pradesh, India. It is listed by the Central Electricity Authority as Thamminapatnam Thermal Power Plant. Two additional phases are being planned that will bring the total size of the plant to 900 MW.

Meenakshi Energy Thermal Power Project is a 300 MW coal project built by Meenakshi Energy in Andhra Pradesh. According to the Central Electricity Authority (September 2012), the first unit of 150 MW was commissioned in September 2012 and the second unit of 150 MW was commissioned in April 2013. According to the company web site, “The first phase of the Project (300 MW) has been configured in a unique ‘part tolling-part merchant’ configuration with PTC India Limited.”
