Udupi Thermal Power Project


The Udupi Power Corporation Ltd, Karnataka, India an imported coal-based thermal power project, is being set up at a cost of Rs 43,420 million through a mix of debt and equity from a consortium of 14 banks and financial institutions led by the Power Finance Corporation Ltd. This is the first Independent Power Project in the country to operate on imported coal and also awarded a “Mega Project” status.

The project has obtained all clearances from various departments of both the Central Government and the State Government. While 90 per cent of the power will be supplied to Karnataka, the balance will be supplied to Punjab, for which necessary Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) have been made with the five Escoms/Discoms of Karnataka and Punjab State Electricity Boards respectively. Karnataka Escoms have provided a three-tier payment security consisting of Letter of Credit, Escrow and State Government guarantee.
