Mahadev Prasad Thermal Power Plant

The Mahadev Prasad Super Thermal Power Plant is a 540-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station operated by Adhunik Power and Natural Resources in Jharkhand state, India.

In 2011 it was reported that Adhunik Power wanted to expand the power station through a Stage III of 540 MW. The proposed expansion would require an additional 500 acres, on top of the 500 acres currently being occupied by Stages I and II. As of March 2015 Adhunik Power has yet to receive permits for the stage III expansion.
