As per a leading financial daily, Tata Power has entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the government of Myanmar for setting up a power plant fueled by imported coal. The project is part of the company's drive to expand its overseas portfolio and is expected to be commissioned in 2019-20. The company has commenced feasibility studies and the capacity of the coal-fired power station will be based on the same. Tata Power's other overseas projects include hydro-electric projects in Bhutan, Georgia and Zambia and two wind power projects in South Africa.
