This is a notable achievement and it demonstrates our proven track record of executing large projects in time, JP Chalasani, CEO, RPower said while briefing reporters after the commissioning of the project. He also used this occasion to drive home the point that the ongoing debate over the quality of Chinese power equipment has become irrelevant, citing the robust performance of the Rosa plant. UP faced power shortage of 1,005 MW on Tuesday, as per data available with the northern region load dispatch centre. The commissioning of the third unit of the Rosa plant could not have come at a more opportune moment for the BSP-run state government as UP is going to polls in February.
Reliance is investing more than R6,000 crore to develop the 1,200 MW Rosa power plant. The tariff for the project works out to be R3,00 a unit. On commissioning of the full capacity, which is expected by next March, the project will supply electricity to 3 lakh households in the state.
