About Coastal Gujarat Power Ltd:

Coastal Gujarat Power Limited (CGPL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Power Ltd, has implemented the 4000 MW (800 x 5 units) UMPP near the port city of Mundra in the state of Gujarat in India. This UMPP is India's first 800 MW unit thermal power plant using supercritical technology and is arguably the most energy-efficient, coal-based thermal power plant in the country.  As per the bidding norms, the Project was designed to be run on imported coal. The Project is expected to benefit close to 16 million domestic consumers apart from supplying cost-competitive power to industry and agriculture.  The Project will supply power to five states namely Gujarat, Rajasthan and Maharashtra in Western India and to Haryana and Punjab in Northern India, which are currently facing a shortage of electricity. It will provide a competitive source of power and help meet these states' growing demand for electricity. Reliable power from the project will help improve the competitiveness of the manufacturing and services industries, which often rely on expensive standby diesel generation to meet their power needs. Competitively priced power will also improve access to electricity in rural and urban areas while reducing the subsidy burden on the state Governments.
