The last unit of India's first ultra-mega coal power plant has been commissioned.

TATA Power, India’s largest integrated power utility and owner of Coastal Gujarat Power, has announced the final commissioning of the 5th unit, 800 MW, at Mundra, Gujurat, the country’s first Ultra Mega power project and reputedly the most efficient coal plant. With this completion the entire 4000 MW of Mundra UMPP has become commercially operational.
Mundra is the first of the UMPPs and it heralds the entry of 800 MW supercritical boiler technology in India. The plant brings the total power generation capacity of Tata Power to 8500 MW.
It was completed in a record time of 1 year from the date of commissioning of the first 800 MW unit in March 2012. The average time taken between synchronisation of 2 units has been 3.5 months which is better than the baseline schedule of 4 months and is much better than the 5 months provided for in the original PPA.
Speaking on this milestone, Mr Anil Sardana, MD of TATA Power said, "The project completion … reinforces Tata Power’s commitment to bridge the energy demand supply gap in India".
