Central Railways is planning to revive its old power plant in Thakurli in Mumbai in Maharashtra. It plans to set up a 700 MW gas based power project in the premises. The project was announced in the FY2011-12 Railways budget. It may be noted, the Thakurli plant was commissioned in 1920 and later decommissioned in 1980 when a mishap happened.
The project will make progress when gas is made available at an economic cost.
