Our power projects in India include:

Sembcorp Gayatri Power Complex

At a total project cost of US$3 billion, the 2,640-megawatt power complex is the largest foreign direct investment-driven project on a single site in India's thermal energy sector to date.

Located in Krishnapatnam, SPSR Nellore District, Andhra Pradesh, the power complex houses two 1,320-megawatt supercritical coal-fired plants, and leverages technology and innovation from start to end. A covered conveyor system transports coal seamlessly from coast to power complex, minimising carbon footprint and air pollution. The supercritical technology utilised also enables higher efficiency and lower emissions compared to conventional coal-fired power plants. In addition, residual fly ash will be recycled on-site into eco-friendly, light-weight, fire-resistant building materials for panel and modular construction.

The power complex plays an essential role in helping to meet the increasing power demand in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and in India, as well as supporting economic growth in the region.

Sembcorp Gayatri Power Complex comprises the following two power projects:

Thermal Powertech Corporation India (TPCIL)


Sembcorp's first thermal power plant in India, the 1,320-megawatt coal-fired TPCIL successfully commenced full commercial operation in September 2015.

Sembcorp owns 86.9% of TPCIL through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Sembcorp Utilities, while Gayatri Energy Ventures, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gayatri Projects, owns the remaining 13.1%.

Sembcorp Gayatri Power (SGPL)


Sembcorp's second thermal power plant, SGPL, is located adjacent to TPCIL, allowing Sembcorp to benefit from substantial synergies, such as the use of a common coal importation and logistics infrastructure and management. The 1,320-megawatt coal-fired plant is expected to be completed in 2016.

Sembcorp owns 88% of SGPL, while the remaining stake is held by Gayatri Energy Ventures through NCC Infrastructure Holdings.
