Tata synchronises 3rd 800 mw unit at Mundra
Tata Power has synchronised the third 800 mw unit at Mundra project in Gujarat, taking its overall generation capacity to 6,899 mw. Two units - 800 mw each - of the flagship 4,000 mw Mundra Ultra Mega Power Project (UMPP) were commissioned earlier this year.
Tata Power, India's largest private power producer, said in a statement on October 8 that it has synchronised the third unit of Mundra UMPP, that is fired by imported coal.
Synchronisation is generally the last step before commissioning of a project.
With this, the total power generation capacity of Tata Power stands at 6,899 mw, reinforcing its position as the largest private power producer in India, it noted. Mundra UMPP is being developed by Tata Power's wholly- owned subsidiary Coastal Gujarat Power (CGPL).
The Tata's power project utilises super critical boiler technology that is environment-friendly and efficient.
