Suratgarh Super Thermal Power Project is an existing 1500 MW coal based thermal power plant promoted and operated by Rajasthan Rajya Viduth Utpadan Nigam Ltd at Shriganganagar in Rajasthan, India.
The four units of 660 MW have been proposed. the proposal is for expansion by addition of 2×660 MW Coal Based Thermal Power Plant at village Thukrana, in Suratgarh Tehsil, in Sri Ganganagar Distt., in Rajasthan.
The existing plants are of capacity 2×250 MW (StageI); 2×250 MW (StageII); 1×250 MW (StageIII); and 1×250 MW (StageIV). Land requirement will be 400 hectares, which comprises of 338 ha single crop agricultural land; and 22 ha waste land. Out of total land required, about 360 ha will be used for main plant; and 40 ha will be used for township.
Coal requirement will be 6.5 MTPA and both will be domestic and imported. Domestic coal will be obtained from Parsa East & Kante Basan Coal Block for which environmental clearance has been obtained on 21.12.2011. Domestic coal and imported coal will be blended in a ratio of 70:30 respectively.
Ash content in domestic coal will be 35% and imported coal will be 16%. About 1.5236 MTPA fly ash and 0.3809 bottom ash will be generated. Stack height will be 275m.
Water requirement will be 121.824 MLD and would be sourced from the Indira Gandhi Nahar Pariyojna through a pipeline at a distance of about 23 kms from the project site. There are no National Parks, Wildlife Sanctuaries, Heritage Sites, Tiger/Biosphere Reserves etc. within 10 km of the site. Public Hearing was held on 29.01.2010.
