Pudimadaka Ultra Mega Power Project

Pudimadaka Ultra Mega Power Project is a proposed 4,000-megawatt coal-fired power project promoted by NTPC at Visakhapatnam district in Andhra Pradesh, India

NTPC and the government of Andhra Pradesh signed a draft power purchase agreement for this project in early 2011, but subsequently the company made no progress on land acquisition.

In January 2014 project sponsor NTPC said it was planning on fast-tracking the project. The project was initially to use domestic coal, but facing difficulty in securing a coal linkage, it may use imported coal. NTPC is awaiting land clearance from the state government, and will then seek the necessary permits, after which it will take an estimated 42 months to implement the five 800 MW units.
