Gujarat State Electricity Corporation Limited (GSECL) has completed the pilot low load test run at the 500 MW unit of its Ukai coal-based power project at 40 per cent of its capacity. The test run was conducted as part of a pilot implemented under USAID’s Greening the Grid – Renewable Integration and Sustainable Energy (RISE) initiative, in partnership with GSECL and Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited. GSECL will now plan its strategy for the flexible operation of 5,000 MW of thermal power capacity to support renewable energy integration in the state.
