It was very hard to convince the loom owners to change from diesel engines to electrical ones. As the electricity demand increased they kept increasing the units. The requirement of thermal units is load centre, availability of fuel, and availability of water; Mumbai served as the best location. Today they are producing 9 GigaWatt of electricity, and Tata Power is looking forward to adding more renewable and sustainable energy units. “It’s state of the art” comments Mr Namjoshi, talking about the Boilers of 30 MegaWatt to 830 MegaWatt critical units as one of the biggest in the country.
