The port city of Kakinada on the East Coast would soon have a floating power plant of 200 MW capacity, paving way for accelerated industrial development of the region.

The floating power plant, the first-of-its-kind in Asia, till recently stationed in Goa and presently working off the Mangalore Coast, was likely to be shifted to Kakinada on a permanent basis under the project cleared by the state Government.

Industrial house GMR has embarked upon taking up this prestigious power project.

Talking to UNI, Commissioner of State Ports K V Brahmananda Reddy said ''the State Government has cleared the application of GMR industrial house for allotment of 57 acre of port land behind the port administrative office complex for its electrical installations and distribution network. ''The floating power plant is expected to be moved here from Mangalore by July end or August first week.'' The tourism corporation was exploring the possibility of developing the 'hope island' as a tourist spot, by introducing ferry service between Kakinada and the island.

The ship building yard and a dry dock proposed to be set up near Kakinada would also materialise soon, he said.
