Project Description

Periyar Energy Limited, a subsidiary company of Energo Group incorporated under the company act 1956, is implementing a 2x300 MW power project in Thoothukudi, Tamil Nadu on premise of Group Captive Power Plants. Set forth by the extant policies of the Ministry of Power the surplus power from the power plant shall be fed to the Grid in Tamil Nadu.

The proposed plant will be developed in two stages, Unit-1 in Stage -1 and Unit -2 in Stage-2.
