Rosa Power Plant is a 1,200 MW of coal based generation capacity at Rosa village in Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh. The power plant is being developed in two stages, with the first stage (Rosa Phase I) already having become commercially operational on 12 March, 2010. It is also the first project of the company to become operational.
Rosa Power Supply Company Limited (RPSCL), the holding company of Rosa Power Plant, was incorporated on September 01, 1994 as a subsidiary of Aditya Birla Power Company. It was later transferred to Reliance Power on November 1, 2006 and is now a fully owned subsidiary of Reliance Power. It is a project that has received a considerable support from the Uttar Pradesh government with it being designated a ‘priority project’. The entire power generated will be sold to Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Limited (UPPCL). The tariff for the power generated by the plant will be determined in accordance with the guidelines for tariff as set by Uttar Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission.
The construction for the Phase I of the project began in June 2007 and by December 2009 the first unit of the project had started generating power. The Boiler, Turbine and Generator (BTG) which are the main equipments for the plant were supplied by Shanghai Electric Corporation, China.
The project uses Coal as the primary fuel. The coal for the project would be supplied from the Ashoka Coal mines of Central Coalfields Limited (CCL) a subsidiary of Coal India Limited (CIL). The coal mines are located in Jharkhand and the coal will be transported by Railways over a distance of 870 kms.
The power generated from the plant will be evacuated using the UP state’s transmission network.
The water required for the power plant is sourced from Garrah river located a kilometer from the project
The Phase I of the project entailed an investment of almost Rs. 3,000 Crore which was funded with a debt equity ratio of 70:30.
The entire 600 MW plant is being efficiently run and managed by our professionally qualified employee strength of 100 led by dedicated management.
