EDAC Engineering Ltd, a city-headquartered EPC and O and M player and an associate of SPIC recently announced the commissioning of 660 MW at NTPC’s Tanda Thermal Power Plant (TTPP).
The unit commissioned was the first phase of EDAC’s contract and the fifth unit of NTPC in the Tanda project. Following the commissioning, the installed capacity of NTPC’s Tanda plant has been increased from 440 MW to 1,100 MW. The full load of the unit will lead to a significant increase in power generation at Uttar Pradesh. Ashwin Muthiah, Chairman, AM International Group, Singapore & Principal Investor of EDAC; Chairman of SPIC, said, “The commissioning of the fifth unit will boost the power supply in Uttar Pradesh.
We continue to work with reputed Indian Maharatna PSUs like NTPC for meeting India’s energy requirement.” Senior NTPC officials including KS Rajeev, Executive Director, Tanda Project, were present during the launch in September this year along with the EDAC Engineering team.
The company is now working towards achieving the full power load production for the sixth unit of 660 MW which is also expected to be operational soon.
The team believes the power generation in both units will help alleviate the power crisis in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
