MOSCOW, April 10./ITAR-TASS/. Rosatom hopes that Russia and India will sign a deal on the second phase of the Kudankulam nuclear power plant project soon.
“We have just concluded a round of talks in India,” Rosatom State Corporation Director-General Sergei Kiriyenko said at an international forum on nuclear security.
In 2010 Russia and India signed a roadmap for building up to 14-16 Russian-design power units in India.
India plans to build 19 nuclear power units with a combined capacity of 17,400 MW by 2017. Eight of them will be built in cooperation with other countries. Russia will help build units 3 and 4 at the Kudankulam nuclear power plant. Each will have a capacity of 1,000 MWe.
The Kudankulam NPP will supply electricity not only to the state of Tamil Nadu, where it is located, but also the whole south of India.
