Butibori thermal power plant:Reliance power’s starts operating at full capacity

Nagpur News : Reliance Power synchronised the second 300-MW unit of its Butibori thermal power project near Nagpur in Maharashtra on Wednesday.

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 300 mw unit of the power plant started operating at full capacity in August 2012, an official statement said.

The Butibori power plant is environment friendly with zero effluent discharge. Also, the entire ash generated by the plant will be utilised by Reliance group’s cement plant.

“With this our operating capacity goes up to 1,840 mw. Reliance Power’s flagship project in Sasan is also progressing at a rapid pace and we expect to commission the first 660 MW unit of the Ultra Mega Power Project in the near future,” Reliance Power chief executive officer J P Chalasani said.
