Power 20:20 | Adani Power Ltd

Highest growth generation company in the last year (private company - thermal power) : Adani Power Ltd

The power business of Adani Group has witnessed several achievements as well as challenges since its inception and yet the journey continues on the chosen path. The recent times have been very eventful. Many lessons have been learnt, initiatives taken and benchmarks established. The current scenario in the power sector and the company´s long term plans present several challenges. However, Adani Power is committed to re-energised actions and further refined competencies to meet them. Adani´s Mundra Thermal Power Project was conceived to provide power for the captive consumption of APSEZ in Mundra. Thereafter the vision and the capabilities of the promoters has made the Mundra Power project one of the largest single location coal based thermal power stations in India and one of the top five in the world. All the nine units of Mundra power plant have been commissioned one after the other in the shortest possible time of 33 months.

Key Success Factors

This is an important milestone in the history of Indian power generation as Adani Power Ltd has added 2,640 MW in the last financial year, accounting for nearly 15 per cent of the overall capacity addition of about 17,000 MW in the country. The company has commissioned two 660 MW units in the first quarter, one 660 MW unit in third quarter and one 660 MW unit in fourth quarter of FY14, two each at Tiroda in Maharashtra and at Kawai in Rajasthan.
