Adani Power Ltd today informed that the company has commissioned the third unit of 660 megawatt (Mw) of its super critical power plant in Tiroda, Maharashtra. This has led the company’s total power generation capacity to 7,260 Mw.

Adani Power Maharashtra Ltd, a unit of Adani Power Ltd, is constructing a 3,300 Mw (5 X 660 Mw) super critical thermal power plant in Tiroda. The company commissioned its first two units of 660 Mw each in last financial year 2012-13 and has current generation capacity of 1,980 Mw at Tiroda. “The third unit was commissioned within a record time of 20 days from synchronization, as against an industry standard of three months,” the company informed in a statement on Thursday.

Apart from this Adani Power has commissioned one of the largest amorphous silicon thin-film solar power projects in a record time of six months as part of clean power initiative, the company said.

“The commissioning of generation units in a regular schedule is a great achievement for us despite the immense challenges faced on the fuel supply and regulatory front. I am confident that Adani Power will emerge as India’s largest private thermal power producer by achieving a capacity of nearly 10,000 MW by March 2014,” said Gautam Adani, chairman of the Adani Group in the statement.

Apart from this Adani Power has commissioned one of the largest amorphous silicon thin-film solar power projects in a record time of six months as part of clean power initiative, the company said.

Out of the total generation capacity of 7,260 Mw, Adani Power generates 4,620 Mw from the Mundra project in Gujarat, and 660 Mw from Kawai Power Plant in Rajasthan.
