India’s largest integrated power company Tata Power’s 100 per cent subsidiary Coastal Gujarat Power Ltd (CGPL) conducted an onsite disaster management drill recently at the 4,000 MW Mundra Ultra Mega Power Plant (UMPP) in order to review its disaster management plan.

The drill was organised to review the plant’s preparedness to deal with major emergencies. The drill was conducted in the fuel storage area where the risk of fire is highest. Any emergency was mitigated with the help of in-house resources and three fire vehicles from Mutual Aid Group members, the company said in a release here on Thursday.

The handling of major emergencies calls for co-ordination among different service groups and stakeholders. Officials from the Government, the fire department, Adani Port & SEZ Ltd, Indian Oil Corporation, Hindustan Petroleum Corporation and Jindal Saw participated in the drill as observers, K. K. Sharma, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer, said.

Tata Power has a total installed generation capacity of 8,521 MW in India and a presence in all segments of the power sector. Its Mundra plant is India’s first UMPP based on super-critical technology.
