Reliance Power has commissioned the first 660 MW unit of its Sasan ultra mega power project (UMPP) in Madhya Pradesh, the company said Monday.

"The first 660 MW unit at the Sasan Ultra Mega Power Plant has been successfully synchronised on March 9, 2013," a company statement said.

The unit would start selling electricity from the plant in the next 15 days to 14 distribution companies in seven states, benefiting an estimated 350 million people.

The plant has also been connected to the national power transmission grid, the company statement added.

This is Reliance Power's first UMPP with an estimated investment of over Rs.200 billion. When completed, the pithead-based plant would generate 3,960 MW.

Coal production has already commenced from the Moher and Moher-Amlohri coal mines and the Chhatrasal coal block is under development after getting forest clearance.

"I am confident that Sasan power project and coal mine would set new benchmarks in operational efficiency," Reliance Power Chief Executive Officer J.P. Chalasani said.

The company is executing two more UMPPs at Krishnapatnam in Andhra Pradesh and Tilaiya in Jharkhand.
