The available land, water, rail linkage, initial man power and other basic amenities needed to set up a new project are already available and can be suitably extended. There is surplus residential accommodation at Nuhon colony at plant site and power colony Ropar. The surplus office accommodation is also available at power colony.
A team of engineers visited Ropar few days back to study the possibility of setting up the project having 2 units of 660 MW each and assess the future land requirements. Land is required for extension of coal handling plant, setting up of cooling tower and setting up the project at Ropar will reduce the cost component considerably.
The additional land requirements for cooling tower and extension of coal plant can be acquired without much resistance. The nearby villagers are already facing pollution and water logging problems.
