NEW DELHI, July 13 (Itar-Tass) - The first unit of the Kudankulam nuclear power plant has been launched in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, a source to the Nuclear Power Corporation of India said on Saturday.
On Friday, July 11, the Atomic Energy Regulatory Authority, AERB, authorized the launch of the first unit of the Kudankulam nuclear power plant. This was done after all security conditions had been ensured in compliance with the Supreme Court resolution of May 6, 2013.
The Kudankulam nuclear power plant is being built under Russia’s technical contribution in accordance with the inter-governmental agreement of 1988 and the supplement to it. Russian and Indian experts coordinated the draft to build the second unit of the plant. They are ready to continue cooperation in this field. There are agreements to construct 16 units at nuclear power plants in India by Russian projects.
