Tata Power said it has synchonised the fifth and last unit of 800 mw capacity at its 4,000 mw Mundra ultra mega power project (UMPP) and with this the entire project is fully operational.
Anil Sardana, Managing Director of Tata Power remarked the synchronisation of the last unit was a significant achievement in a sector, which is ridden with numerous challenges.
Following this, the company's overall generation capacity has increased to nearly 8,500 mw, according to an official statement. While the firm has 7,647 mw of thermal power generation capacity, it generates 852 mw power from hydro, wind.
Synchronisation is the final step before commissioning of a power generation unit. The first unit of Mundra UMPP started commercial operations in March 2012.
It may be noted that the firm requested CERC to allow it to raise tariffs for the electricity generated from the Mundra plant owing to the increase in prices of imported coal.
Sardana said the firm eagerly awaits a viable solution by the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) and look forward to an early resolution of this issue.
The plant is being implemented by Coastal Gujarat Project (CGPL), a special purpose vehicle of Tata Power. The company has inked power purchase agreements for the project with seven procurers from five states -- Gujarat, Haryana, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Punjab.
