Gas powered plants are to be set up on the Andaman and Nicobar islands. The Island Coastal Zone Regulation (ICRZ), 2019, limits infrastructure development on vulnerable coastal stretches. It is being done to meet the energy requirement of the islanders while reducing the dependence on highly polluting energy sources such as conventional diesel generator (DG) sets. The Andaman and Nicobar administration is expected to commission a 50¬MW power project running on liquefied natural gas at Hope Town, Port Blair, to be developed by the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC). A proposed project plans to develop a 22¬ airport complex, a transshipment port (TSP) at South Bay at an estimated cost of ₹12,000 crore, a parallel ¬to¬ the -coast mass rapid transport system and a free trade zone and ware housing complex on the southwestern coast.
