NTPC invites EOIs for Tattapani Geothermal Power Project
NTPC has invited EoIs for the proposed Tattapani Geothermal Power Project in Balrampur district of Chhattisgarh. EoIs have been invited for preparation of detailed project report (DPR) including deep drilling for development of the power project.
The Tattapani Power Project will be the first geothermal power plant in India. In February 2013, NTPC had signed an MoU with Chhattisgarh Renewable Energy Development Agency (CREDA) for setting up the power plant. The Tattapani Geothermal field is located approximately 100 km northeast of Ambikapur in Chhattisgarh and is considered to be one of the most promising sites in India for developing geothermal energy.
