MMRDA forays into generation

Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is foraying into the power generation segment to ease the power shortage in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. MMRDA will set up a Special Purpose Vehicle along with the Indian Railways, Mahagenco and City Industrial and Development Corporation (CIDCO) to finalise probable sites for the plant, which can generate between 800-1,200 MW. The two sites under consideration are the Thakurli Power Station, which was shut down by the railways after a major accident, and areas in New Mumbai controlled by the CIDCO. MMRDA is in talks with CIDCO to find land parcels in the region where a power plant can be set up. In case the Thakurli plant is revived, the city could get additional electricity by 2013, whereas constructing a complete green field project could take more than five years.
