- This record is sequel to Mundra Power subcritical 330 MW unit having created National record of continuous running of 684 days, in 2017
- Unit 7 at Mundra power creates national record by running continuously for 411 days and still spinning
- TCPL, Nellore unit had earlier run for 410 days previously
- Feat accomplished with 79.01% PLF and zero SOC.

Ahmedabad, 12th August 2020: Adani Power Mundra Limited, a subsidiary of Adani Power Limited, today said that a 660 MW supercritical unit (U#7) at 4620 MW Mundra Power Thermal Plant has created a new national record by running continuously for 411 days.
According to industry data, a unit at TCPL, Nellore power plant had earlier run for 410 days in supercritical category.
As we go to press, the unit is still operational and continues to build on a new generation record.
The 660 MW supercritical facility generated 5132 million units of electricity during this uninterrupted operation. What is even more remarkable is that the feat was achieved with 79.01% PLF and Zero Specific Oil Consumption "The continuous operation of the thermal unit, without any interruptions amidst a global pandemic speaks of the ability of our team to harness complexities of technology and amplify scale of operations involved in it”, said Mr. Anil Sardana, Managing Director, Adani Power Limited
This was not the first record established by APL. Earlier, Mundra subcritical asset too had entered the record books.
