By the end of 2018, Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom intends to finally transfer the second power unit of India’s Kudankulam NPP to the customer, Rambler News reported referring to Atomstroyexport, a Rosatom’s subsidiary.
“Plans for 2018 are the following: the final transfer of the power unit No. 2 to the customer,” the company said. This year, the company also plans to begin work on the execution of a contract for the equipment supply for power units No. 5 and No. 6.
As a reference, the first power unit of the Kudankulam NPP was finally put into operation by the Indian side in April last year. Also, at that time, a provisional acceptance certificate for the power unit No. 2 was signed. Kudankulam NPP is being built in the state of Tamil Nadu (India) within the framework of the Russian-Indian agreement of November 20, 1988, and its supplement of June 21, 1998, as well as the agreement of December 8, 2008.
The general contractor is Atomstroyexport, the general designer is Atomenergoproekt, and the customer is the Indian Atomic Energy Corporation (NPSIL). The construction of the Kudankulam NPP is based on a project provided for the construction of VVER 1000 MW power units, developed by Atomenergoproekt.
