Sembcorp launches $4.23b power complex in India

It houses two 1,320-megawatt coal-fired plants.

Sembcorp Industries has successfully cut the ribbon on its US$3b (roughly $4.23b), 2,640-megawatt power facility in India.

According to the company’s media release, the Sembcorp Gayatri Power Complex is thus far the largest foreign direct investment-driven project on a single site in India’s thermal energy sector.

The complex houses two 1,320-megawatt supercritical coal-fired power plants. Thermal Powertech Corporation India, the first of the two plants, was completed and commenced full commercial operation in September 2015. The second power plant, NCC Power Projects, is expected to be fully operational in 2016.

The Sembcorp Gayatri Power Complex is equipped with a covered conveyor system that it transports coal from the coast to the facility, thereby limiting carbon footprint and air pollution. The facility also uses supercritical technology that enables increased efficiency and reduced emissions. Further, the power complex utilises resource recovery that recycles residual ash on-site into building materials for panel and modular construction.
