Even as the boiler light-up was achieved for the second 660 MW unit at the 4000 MW Sasan ultra mega power project (UMPP) in Madhya Pradesh, Reliance Power said on Friday that it would commission the second next month.

The 660 MW second unit at the coal-fired power plant will be put to test this month and is likely to become operational by next month. The Sasan project is the first of three 4,000 MW plants that Reliance Power is building. The first 660 MW unit of the project was commissioned in March.

In a statement issued here, the company said boiler light-up has been achieved for the second 660 MW unit at the Sasan UMPP. Coal production has started from the 20 million tonne per annum capacity Moher and Moher-Amlohri mines allotted to the power project, the statement added. Two 600 MW units of the company's Rosa thermal power project are already operational.
