SUGEN Mega Power Plant is the largest private sector gas-based power project and also amongst the first mega power projects in the country. The Plant is located near Surat in South Gujarat. It consists of three power blocks of 382.5 MW capacity each comprising of one advanced class gas turbine (Siemens’ SGT5 4000F), one steam turbine and a common generator connected in single shaft configuration along with a Heat Recovery Steam Generator. Support systems include Water Intake Well, Natural Draft Cooling Towers, Effluent Treatment Plant and Water Treatment Plant. The plant is well connected and is strategically located close to all required infrastructure, fuel supply sources and power off-take markets.

The plant has access to all major sources of Natural Gas / LNG in the country through the pipeline connectivity of Gujarat State Petronet Limited (GSPL). Natural Gas for the project has been sourced from the KG basin fields of Reliance, PMT gas fields and the Petronet LNG’s plant at Dahej. The plant has been designed such that it substantially reduces emissions and is registered under the Clean Development Mechanism with UNFCCC. The SUGEN Plant has the distinction of having one of the lowest per MW capital cost of generation in the country.

The project has been accorded the 'Mega Power' status by the Ministry of Power, Government of India. SUGEN has been awarded the prestigious “2012 Sword of Honour” by the British Safety Council, U.K. in recognition of its exemplary performance in health and safety management.It is also certified with ISO 9001:2008 (Quality Management System), ISO 50001:2011 (Energy Management System), ISO 14001:2004 (Environment Management System) and BS OHSAS 18001:2007 (Occupational Health and Safety Management System).

Torrent Power has further set up and commissioned unit - 40 with a capacity of 382.5 MW at its existing SUGEN Power Plant site. The EPC contract was awarded to Siemens along with the Long Term Supply and Service Contracts. This has increased the total generation capacity from the SUGEN Plant site to 1530 MW.
