Adani Group commissions India’s first transnational power project

Adani Group has commissioned India’s first transnational power project- the 1,600 MW ultra super-critical thermal power plant (USCTPP) in Godda, Jharkhand.

The 100 per cent power generated from Godda USCTPP is supplied to Bangladesh. Adani Power Jharkhand Limited (APJL), a wholly owned subsidiary of Adani Power Limited, completed the dependable capacity test for the Godda plant. The dependable capacity test, a mandatory requirement under the power purchase agreement (PPA) with Bangladesh, was conducted over the stipulated period of six hours to evaluate the simultaneous functioning of both units of the plant after they began supplying electricity. Notably, the first unit of 800 MW capacity began commercial operations on April 6, 2023, while the second unit, also of 800 MW capacity, followed on June 26, 2023. APJL will supply 1,496 MW from the Godda USCTPP under the PPA with the Bangladesh Power Development Board, executed in November 2017 for a period of 25 years, via a 400 kV dedicated transmission system connected to the Bangladesh grid. The Godda power plant started operations with flue gas desulphurisation, selective catalytic reconverter and zero water discharge for minimising emissions and for environment friendly operations.
