Project Description: Neyveli Lignite Corporation (NEYVELILIG) is planning to undertake the Karaikal supercritical thermal power plant project in Tamil Nadu, India.

The project involves the construction of a 1,980MW coal-fired thermal power plant which will be executed in three units of 660MW each.

The project includes the construction of a powerhouse, substations, and other related facilities, the installation of generators and turbines, and laying of power transmission lines.

The power plant will be developed by using supercritical technology that would reduce carbon dioxide emission besides burning less fuel with higher output.
