Adani Power is now positioned as India's largest private power producer after commissioning a fourth 660 MW unit at its supercritical coal-fired Tiroda thermal power station in Maharashtra. The company, which is a subsidiary of Adani Enterprises, said this addition increases its total capacity to about 8.6 gigawatts.
"This is an important milestone in the history of Indian power generation as Adani Power has added 2,640 MW in the last financial year, accounting for nearly 15 percent of the overall capacity addition of about 17,000 MW in the country," the company said in a statement.
The first three units at the power station are also rated with a generating capacity of 660 MW each. The first two units were commissioned in the first quarter. The third and fourth were commissioned in the third quarter and fourth quarter of 2014, respectively, Press Trust of India reported.
"It is a significant milestone in the path to achieve Adani Power's target of generating 20,000 MW by 2020," Adani Group Chairman Gautam Adani said.
