RAIGARH (Chhattisgarh): NTPC Ltd is setting up Super Thermal Power Project in Lara near Raigarh in the state of Chhattisgarh.
NTPC-Lara Super Thermal Power Project, Stage–I 2X800 MW, is intended for faster implementation of power and other infrastructure projects in the Country. The estimated cost of the project is Rs. 11741.72 crores, which includes Rs. 787 crores for environmental protection measures.
According to the EIA report, The Lara STPP stage–I (2×800) MW of the project will generate 3.0 MT ash (2.4 MTP Fly Ash and 0.6 MTPA bottom Ash) annually. About 2375 acres of land is required for setting up of Lara STPP Stage-I whereas 525 acres would require for ash pond of stage-II.
“The main areas of ash utilisation are manufacturing of fly ash based products (portland·pozzolana cement, brick, light weight aggregates, asbestos cement products, cement concrete etc.) and use in land fills, structural fill etc. for development of land.

According to report, Coal requirement for Lara-I, STPP project is estimated as 7.00 million tonne/annum, considering average GCV of 4200 kcal/kg and 90 % PLF shall be met from Talaipalli coal blocks (Mand-Raigarh coalfields) allotted to NTPC. Coal is proposed to be transported from Coalfields through MGR/Indian Railways network.
In pursuit to achieve its target to eliminate energy and peaking shortages in the country, NTPC Ltd has proposed Lara Integrated Super Thermal Power project (Lara STPP)in two stages stage-I (2×800 MW) and Stage-II (3×800 MW).
