The project is commissioning and operation of a new, green field 469 MW Natural Gas fired, gas turbine based combined cycle power plant. The proposed project activity is being installed by GVK Gautami Power Ltd. (GPL) at Industrial Development Area, Peddapuram, near Samalkot in East Godavari district, Andhra Pradesh, India. The project activity uses relatively cleaner fuel, natural gas instead of most common fuel in the grid i.e. coal for power generation. Thus, the project activity will avoid significant emission compared to the usual practice in coal dominated Indian power sector.
