Kerala Thermal Power Plants Map

Kerala has three thermal power stations. They are Bhramapuram, Kozhikode and Kayamkulam Thermal Power Plants. The State has 23 hydro Power Plants and only 3 Thermal Power Plants. The availability of water is one of the reasons for the same.

Among the several Kerala thermal power plants, Kayamkulam Thermal Power Plant is the most prestigious. It was opened on 17th January, 1999 by the then Prime Minister of India, Shri Atal BEhari Vajpayee. This initiative by the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) has proved extremely beneficial and valuable to the power sector in India. The Kayamkulam Combined Cycle Project by NTPC is also precious to Kerala, the state which often witnesses power shortages.
