Adani Power’s Tiroda power plant has not yet secured long term coal linkage yet. Third unit of Tiroda power plant was commissioned in June last year. At present, Adani Power is procuring coal through tapering linkage from Coal India. The company is seeking conversion of tapering linkage to long term linkage. However, no decision has been taken in this regard and in the mean time the Ministry for Power has recommended supplies of coal for two more years under tapering linkage for the Tiroda power plant.
Adani Power Maharashtra, a subsidiary of Adani Power, had drawn an ambitious plan to set up 3,300 MW power plant (5×660) at Tiroda and at present 3X600 MW power plant is operational. Tiroda power project was allotted the Lohara West Extension coal block of the Wardha coal field in November 2007. However, in 2010 the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests denied permission to Adani Power saying the project was within a ‘no-go’ area, being in the wildlife corridor for a tiger reserve.
