As part of NTPCs Western Region II, NTPC Sipat will ensure power supply to the states of Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Goa, Daman & Diu as also Dadra & Nagar Haveli. NTPC will source the coal from Korbas Dipka extension mines of SECL for the project at Sipat. The 2,980 MW coal-based Sipat thermal power plant in Chhattisgarh has three units of 660 MW and two units of 500 MW, which are already operational. The fuel is transported through NTPCs own rail transportation system. The water for the plant is sourced through a 16-km pipeline from the banks of the Hasdeo barrage canal, from Hardivishal village in the district.
As per the MoU signed between Chhattisgarh Government and the NTPC, Chhattisgarh will be getting 50 per cent of the generated power and the remaining 50 per cent will be shared by other states.
