Babandh power project

Babandh power project is a proposed 2640 MW power plant at Denkanal in Odisha, India. Lanco Babandh Power has proposed setting up a  (4 x 660 MW) coal-fired thermal power project at Denkanal. The project would be implemented in two phases of 2 x 660 MW in each phase. Source of fuel ( coal) is unknown as earlier allocated coal block ( Rampia) has been cancelled.

In mid 2014 Lanco was reportedly looking to sell the 1320 MW power station, due to company debt. As of April 2015 Phase II has yet to receive environmental clearance.
