With this, all of Sasan UMPP units have successfully been commissioned, 12 months ahead of the power-purchase agreement (PPA) schedule. The first five units of 660 Mw each, totalling 3,300 Mw, had been commissioned in about 12 months.
The Sasan UMPP is the largest integrated power-plant-cum-coal-mining project at a single location in the world. It involves an investment of over Rs 27,000 crore, the largest for a project at a single location in Madhya Pradesh. Coal production has already commenced from the 20-million-tonne Moher and Moher-Amlohri coal mines associated with the project.
With the sixth unit, Reliance Power’s generation capacity has increased to 5,945 Mw — 5,760 Mw of thermal capacity and 185 Mw of renewable energy-based capacity
