The power business arm of Adani Group, Adani Power Ltd, has successfully synchronised with the grid one of India’s first plants based on supercritical technology, the 660 MW unit at Mundra in the Kutch district of Gujarat. In supercrit terms it follows closely on the commissioning of the the Sipat plant in 2008 and 2009.

Adani Power’s coal fired thermal generation capacity now stands at 1980 MW, making it the third largest power generating company in the private sector. This 660 MW unit has a unique distinction as it is the world’s first supercritical technology based project to be certified for Carbon Credits under the UNFCC.

Adani Power is in the process of setting up 4620 MW of coal fired power plant at Mundra, consisting of 4 units of 330 MW and 5 units of 660 MW, the 660 MW units all being based on super critical technology. On completion of this project in March 2012, Mundra power plant will become the largest coal fired station in India and one of the largest five in the world. Financial closure of the entire 4620 MW project at Mundra has already been achieved.
