The infrastructure work on Goa-Tamnar power project to be completed by August: Dhavalikar  


Panaji: Power Minister Sudin Dhavalikar on Tuesday said that the work on installing infrastructure for Goa-Tamnar Power project would be completed in the state by August this year.

Talking to reporters, Dhavalikar said that the 90 per cent work on Goa-Tamnar power project has been completed in Goa, while rest work will be completed by August, this year.

He said that the power requirement of the coastal state was 820 MW this year which will increase in the years to come. “The power requirement of Goa is estimated to grow at the pace of 100 MW every year, which means that 300-400 MW power will be required in next 3-4 years,” he said.

Dhavalikar said that Goa is readying an infrastructure for 1,200 MW capacity under Goa-Tamnar Power project.

The minister said that the Karnataka part of the project has hit uncertainty though Supreme Court has cleared the project. He said that Karnataka has to look at the project from “positive point of view.”

It may be recalled that the Government of Karnataka has rejected the proposal for Goa-Tamnar power project recommended by its own officials.

Dhavalikar said that the infrastructure of Goa-Tamnar project will be kept ready and once it is commissioned Goans will benefit from it.
