The long awaited 5th thermal power station’s construction to start this year. The Government has decided to build the 5th thermal power station near the 3rd power station which could save over USD 100 million. The plan is to finish the first part of the power station in 2015 and start the second part and finish that by 2019.
The plant will have capacity to produce 820 megawatt of electricity using the latest technology. Two small eco friendly factories will be built near the power station to recycle the waste from the factory. The officials say that the small factories will produce cements using the waste. The tender to choose the construction company would be announced this year.
