Power Finance Corp and CEA are likely to short-list 5 possible locations in Orissa to set up 2 more Ultra Mega Power Plant each with a capacity of 4000 MW. The short-listed locations are Dhamara (Bhadrak district), Paradip (Jagatsinghpur district), Astharanga (Puri district) and Ganja in Ganjam district. These locations are considered as sea-water will be used in these projects. As of now, Orissa is likely to get 3 UMPP and may get 50% of power produced from the planned 2 UMPPs and 32.5% of power from Sundergarh UMPP which is likely to be commissioned by 2013.
