Highest-growth (power) generation company in the last year (private company- thermal power) - Rattan India Power

Rattan India Group is a business conglomerate with business interests in power generation and finance. RattanIndia Power is developing coal-based thermal power projects in Amravati and Nasik, Maharashtra. Just to put the figures in perspective, it has 3,235 acre of land under possession for the power generation projects having a total installed capacity of 2,700 MW. Further, it has coal linkage from Coal India for 5,400 MW and lastly, it owns a 70 km of railway line for both the thermal power projects. <p></p> <p>Amaravati Thermal Power Project is being setup by RattanIndia Power (formerly known as Indiabulls Power) at the additional Amravati industrial area. The total capacity of the plant is 2,700 MW, comprising of two phases each of 1,350 MW. Phase 1 with installed generation capacity of 1,350 MW has already been commissioned. The generation capacity of 810 MW was commissioned in a span of just 39 days which is a national record. It has 5 units of the best in class BHEL, each with a capacity of 270 MW. </p> <p>Nashik Thermal Power Project is being setup by RattanIndia Nasik Power (formerly known as Indiabulls Realtech), a subsidiary of RattanIndia Power. The total capacity of the project is 2,700 MW in 2 phases, each of 1,350 MW with each phase comprising of 5 units each of 270 MW. All five units of Phase 1 have been commissioned. As regards to the performance highlights in FY18, with 2,700 MW commissioned capacity (Amaravati and Nashik Phase 1 each of 1,350 MW), the company is amongst the top 10 IPP generators in India.</p> <p>On the financial front, EBITDA from Amaravati plant for FY2018 stood at Rs 8.24 billion. As regards the PLF, the plant was available 100 per cent. However, the shortage of coal resulted in less despatch than the scheduled capacity. The company expects to claim the difference as a part of the ongoing case related to the short supply of coal under the coal linkage. </p> <p> <span style="font-weight: bold;">SOLAR PORTFOLIO</span><br /> Apart from this, RattanIndia has a solar portfolio of more than 300 MW of solar power projects which includes ground mounted solar projects as well as rooftop solar.
