Reliance Power has synchronised the first of two units of its 600-MW Butibori Thermal Power Project near Nagpur, according to a BL report. Power generated will mainly be distributed to industrial as well as distribution utilities in Maharashtra. Reliance Power said the first unit had been synchronised in a record time of over 21 months from boiler erection. The second 300-MW unit will be commissioned before the end of this calendar year, noted the report. The Rs 3,600-crore plant is among the most compact-sized thermal plants with its 600-MW capacity requiring not more than 275 acres.
JP Chalasani, Chief Executive Officer, Reliance Power, said: 'Butibori demonstrates our expertise and experience in building large-scale power projects. With Butibori, our operating capacity goes up to 1,540 MW'.
