Adani Power Mundra Limited, a subsidiary of Adani Power
Limited, today said that a 660 MW supercritical unit (U#7) at 4620 MW Mundra Power
Thermal Plant has created a new national record by running continuously for 411 days.
According to industry data, a unit at TCPL, Nellore power plant had earlier run for 410 days
in supercritical category.
As we go to press, the unit is still operational and continues to build on a new generation
record.
The 660 MW supercritical facility generated 5132 million units of electricity during this
uninterrupted operation. What is even more remarkable is that the feat was achieved with
79.01% PLF and Zero Specific Oil Consumption "The continuous operation of the thermal
unit, without any interruptions amidst a global pandemic speaks of the ability of our team to
harness complexities of technology and amplify scale of operations involved in it”, said Mr.
Anil Sardana, Managing Director, Adani Power Limited
This was not the first record established by APL. Earlier, Mundra subcritical asset too had
entered the record books. In 2017, Mundra Power Plant, sub-critical 330 MW unit had
created a similar national record of continuous running for 684 days. The Mundra power
plant operates nine units. Five of these units are supercritical units of 660 MW each and the
balance four units are sub-critical units of 330 MW each, taking the total generation of the
power plant to 4,620 MW.
