Kaj Nanavada power station is a proposed 1320 MW coal-fired power plant promoted by Mumbai based infrastructure development company named Shapoorji Pallonji Energy (Gujarat) Pvt. Ltd at Junagarh district in Gujarat, India.
In February 2011, a final draft Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) was issued for the Kaj/Nanavada power station. Terms of Reference (TOR) for the proposed power plant were approved by India’s Ministry of Environment and Forests in May 2010.
According to a 2014 investment report on the company, the total project cost for “Phase I has witnessed cost overruns and is currently estimated at about Rs. 7,700 crore.” The power station is planned for commissioning in May 2015.
Indonesian coal of GCV 5000 kcal/kg (approximate) will be imported for the proposed power project. The estimated imported coal requirement is approx. 4.5 Million Ton per Annum (considering 90% PLF). Coal supply agreement for sourcing Inodonesian coal has been executed. This Imported coal will be transported from the proposed port at Charra to proposed power plant site through twin stream pipe conveyor.
Approximately 340 ha of land have been identified for the power station including ash pond, coal stockpile, green belt etc. Additional land area of approx. 25ha has been identified for coal/water corridor.
The consumptive water requirement for the 2 x 660 MW plant is about 13,193 m3/hr for cooling, process use and other miscellaneous uses. Sea water will be used which will be supplied from the intake pump house proposed to be located at a distance of about 7 km from the project site.
