Reliance Power has synchronized the second of the two 300MW units of its Butibori Thermal Power Project near Nagpur in Maharashtra. The Unit has been synchronized on 2nd Jan '13 in the early hours and simultaneously coal firing of the unit has been achieved. Power generated from the plant will be distributed to industrial and distribution utilities and will help reduce the demand-supply gap in Maharashtra.
The first 300MW unit achieved full load in earlier this year in August. With the commissioning of the second unit, the full 600MW capacity will be available from the Butibori plant.
The plant is among the most compact-sized thermal plants in the country with its 600 MW capacity requiring not more than 275 acres of plant land. The Butibori power plant is environment friendly with zero effluent discharge. Also, the entire ash generated by the plant will be utilized by Reliance group's own cement plant.
Reliance Power is a part of the Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group and is established to develop, construct and operate power projects domestically and internationally.
