Nigrie Thermal Power Plant – 2X660 MW


Project Profile

Jaypee Nigrie Super Thermal Power Project comprising 2 x 660 MW Super-critical Unit will be set up by JPVL at a site in Nigrie - Village, Tehsil - Deosar, District - Singrauli in Madhya Pradesh. The expected date of commissioning for Unit - I and Unit - II are Nov 2013 and March 2014 respectively.

The Nigrie Thermal Project is expected to utilize coal from two captive coal blocks, the Amelia (North) and Dongri Tal – II coal block with total coal reserves of 250 MT of coal. These coal blocks contain sufficient coal reserves to fuel the Nigrie Thermal project over the long term. JAL is expected to develop and mine this coal in a joint venture with MPSMCL. The joint venture has been allotted these two coal blocks solely for the purpose of supplying fuel to the Nigrie Thermal Project.


  • Super critical boiler technology will achieve an unprecedented net efficiency level for brown coal power stations. This technology’s higher steam temperatures and pressure parameters offer the most economical way to improve plant efficiency and operating flexibility – as well as achieve fuel cost savings and lower emissions for each KWH of electricity
  • Improved thermal efficiency
  • Lower emissions levels
  • Lower operating costs
  • Greater operating flexibility
  • Reduced fuel consumption
  • Reduced fuel cost
  • Reduced ash generation
  • Reduction of carbon dioxide emission due to less consumption of fuel
  • Very good part load efficiency as compared to sub-critical unit
  • Reduced NOx,Sox and SPM emission

Technical Information:

  • 1320 MW super critical technology boiler, pit head based Thermal Power Plant
  • Hydro test for Unit – 1 Boiler completed on Feb. 2013
  • 400 KV DC Power Transmission Line will be commissioned by June 2013
  • Railway Sidings viz. Nigrie-Niwas Road Railway station and Amelia (North) – Majhauli Railway Station will be commissioned by July 2013
  • Pithead Located Captive Coal Block Based Plant – Joint Venture of JAL with MP State Mining Corporation for coal block mining to meet entire coal requirement for 25 years.

Expected Commissioning:

  • Unit 1 – Dec 2013
  • Unit 2 – March 2014
