Tata Power Company has decommissioned ‘Unit 6’ of 500 megawatts at its Trombay thermal power plant in Mumbai, citing the high cost of generation and its inability to get a power purchase agreement after the earlier one expired in March 2018.
The Trombay unit has an installed generation capacity of 1,580 MW, which supplies electricity to the majority of consumers – both bulk and retail – in Mumbai.
“We have informed the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) regarding retirement & decommissioning of Unit 6. CEA has approved the same and sent us a letter in this regard,” Tata Power said in a response to an email query from ET.
The company, till the time of going to press, did not comment on ET’s queries on whether the company would look at setting up another unit to replace this unit. Read More
