A visualised model of the 2x250 Mega Watt Champoor coal power plant (Trincomalee Thermal Plant) is to be built by New Delhi's National Thermal Power Corporation Limited in partnership with Ceylon Electricity Board. The TTP will spread over an area of about 505 acres outside the 818 acres of lands were the subject of the recent gazette notification. The power generation process is to be based on pulverised coal fired technology, in which the chemical energy of the coal is first converted into thermal energy, which is then converted into mechanical energy through a turbine and finally into electrical energy through a generator.
