Sapos power project, Facor Power states that it is “developing a 600MW supercritical coal based thermal IPP in the state of Chhattisgarh. The Project is developed by the SPV BEC Power Pvt. Ltd. BEC is a wholly owned subsidiary of the FACOR Group and holds a portion of the land and certain approvals and applications required for the development of the Chhattisgarh Project.”
An Executive Summary for the project states that the proposed location is at Sapos Village, Dabhra Tehsil, Janjgir-Champa District in Chhattisgarh.
BEC Power has proposed to establish a 500 megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Sapos Village, Dabhra Tehsil, Janjgir-Champa District, Chhattisgarh. The company proposes that the plant comprise two 250MW units.
In a summary of its Environmental Impact Assessment BEC Power states that the project would require 2.96 million tonnes of coal a year for the 500MW plant. The company stated in late 2010 that it was seeking a coal linkage from the Ministry of Coal for allocation from either South Eastern Coalfields Limited’s mine in the Korba area or Mahanadi Coalfields Limited mines in Raigarh and the Ib-Valley.
Since there has been no apparent progress in developing the project since 2010, as of March 2015 it appears to be abandoned.
