The Ratan Tata-led Tata Power, aims to add 60 per cent of its installed generation capacity by commissioning over 1,900 MW from multiple sources in 2011.
“Next year there will be a series of projects which will be commissioned...we have 800 MW in Mundra, 1,050 MW in Maithon’s two units, 120 MW in Jojobera with Tata Steel, 100 MW in wind and 25 MW of solar in Gujarat,” the company’s Executive Director (Operations), S. Padmanabhan, told PTI here.
Tata Power has an installed power generation capacity of about 3,000 MW presently.
He said the coal-fired Maithon project in Jharkhand is in the “final stages” of completion and the company expects to commission the first of the two 525 MW units by March 2011 which will be followed by the second one, expected to be running in the July-September quarter.
The Maithon project is a 74:26 joint venture between Tata Power and Damodar Valley Corporation.
The company has finished 65 per cent work on the first unit of 800 MW in its Mundra ultra mega power project (UMPP) in Gujarat and is confident of commissioning it by August 2011.
“Once the first unit is commissioned, there will be a new commissioning every six months,” he said.
A total of five units of 800 MW, running on coal, are to be erected as part of the UMPP.
