Bansagar power project is a proposed 1600 MW coal fired power plant set up by MP Power Management Company at Shahdol district in Madhya Pradesh, India.
MP Power Management Company earlier known as MP tradeco, would float tenders to invite bidders for the project, after obtaining all regulatory clearances. One village needs to be rehabilitated for the project. The water source will be the Bansagar dam.
Business Standard reported in September 2011 as
MPSMC won the case after a petition filed by KSK last year. A well-placed source in the government said it would now go with the Bansagar thermal power project partner for Morga-I mines. “The partner may be a government agency or a private company,” he told Business Standard.
To be developed at Tikuratola village, Bansagar project will be based on super-critical technology with units of 800 Mw. The state cabinet had in July decided to reserve Morega-1 coal block and funds at the rate of 14 per cent for acquiring land for the project, the source pointed out.
Morga-I block, which is located in Chhattisgarh’s north-central Korba district, has approximately 250 million tonnes of coal reserves. It was awarded to state mining corporation in 2006 with 51 per cent of cashless equity. “The potential partner will hold 49 per cent in it. However it (partner) will have to pay 200 per cent facilitation fee linked with royalty. The corporation will have rights to use the surplus coal reserves,”
