Russia will continue to build nuclear power plants in India

Rosatom and the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) signed a general framework agreement on the construction of the second stage of the Kudankulam nuclear power plant in Tamil Nadu. This information was confirmed by Vladimir Kats, Senior Vice President for Economics and Finance of NIAEP-Atomstroyexport.

"Concluded agreements with India on the construction of two new blocks," he said. "We will participate in the construction of 3 and 4 (second stage) blocks in India," the press service of NIAEP-Atomstroyexport reported.

In the near future, the first unit of the Kudankulam NPP in India, built with the participation of Russia, will be brought to 100% of capacity, Katz said.

Before 2017, India plans to construct 19 nuclear power units with a total capacity of 17,4 thousand MW, of which 8 will be built with the participation of other countries.

In 2010, Russia and India signed a "road map", which provides for the serial construction here to 14-16 power units of nuclear power plants for Russian projects.

Russia and India have already signed a general framework agreement on the construction of the second stage of the Kudankulam NPP in the state of Tamil Nadu.
