Power plant in Orissa needs approval

Jindal Stainless Ltd’s (JSL) proposal to set up a 1000MW power plant at Luni in Dhenkanal district of Orissa will require fresh approval of the State Level Single Window Clearance Authority following change of site of the project. The project envisaging an investment of INR 4090 crore was earlier cleared by both the SLSWCA and the High Level Clearance Authority headed by the chief minister Mr Naveen Patnaik. Originally, JSL had chosen Gajamara in Dhenkanal district as the site for its proposed power plant. But the area was later allotted to the National Thermal Power Corp. by the state government for setting up of a 3200MW thermal power station. The government had asked JSL to look for an alternative site following which the company has now zeroed in on Luni in Dhenkanal district to locate the plant. Meanwhile, the state energy department has communicated to IPICOL about the change of the site of the project. The project requires about 2000 acres which includes 1200 acres for setting up of a power unit, water reservoir, coal stock yard, ash pond and residential colony. The remaining 800 acres will be used to create green belt.
