The National Institute of Oceanography based on NIO's past studies in the interest location carried out the following studies:
Marine Ecology Study on the proposed area
Impact on the sea environment for the seawater coming from the Power Plants
The feasibility location of intake and outfall for cooling water along with the thermal Plume Study

The "Marine Ecology Study on the Proposed area" report presents information from the NIO archives, published and unpublished report, research publications, and field surveys (inter-tidal zone, offshore upto the 20 m depth contour, Churna Island - critical habitat). The survey was carried out during May-June, November-December 2014.
