The first 525 MW unit of the 2 x 525 Maithon Power Ltd (MPL) is expected to be commercialised this month, according to sources. The unit was synchronised on March 28. MPL is a 74:26 thermal power joint venture between Tata Power and Damodar Valley Corporation. BHEL was the BTG (boiler-turbine-generator) contractor for the project.

While responses are not available from Tata Power, sources confirmed the synchronisation of the unit. The entire 1,050 MW (2 x 525 MW) project is expected to be on stream in July-August 2011. DVC will get 300 MW of power from the project, followed by State utilities of West Bengal (150 MW) and Punjab (300 MW).

Meanwhile, implementation of the first 800 MW unit of Tata Power's Mundra ultra mega power plant (UMPP) is progressing ahead of schedule and the construction of the generation unit may be over as early as next month.
