Rosatom starts construction of 6th unit at Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant

The construction of the 6th Unit at Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) has been launched through the first concreting in the foundation slab of the reactor building, an official statement issued by Russia’s state nuclear corporation Rosatom said.

“The first two NPP power units are demonstrating the sustainable operation at the nominal power level. The power units of the second stage are being constructed, namely the works are underway at Unit 3 to prepare for installation of the reactor pressure vessel,” the statement adds.

In June of this year, the first concrete was laid at the power unit No. 5, and on December 20, the first concreting was launched at the power unit No. 6. “The third stage of the Kudankulam NPP relating to the main construction period will provide additional power capacity to ensure the industrial and commercial development of businesses in the Tamil Nadu region and India as a whole. Moreover, it will promote more confidence in our friendly countries’ prospects to expand peaceful nuclear cooperation by using the most advanced projects of high-capacity nuclear power units of the Russian design,” Andrey Lebedev, ASE JSC Vice-President for Projects in India and Prospective Projects comments in the statement.

The equipment required for the top-priority installation at Units 5 and 6 are being supplied now and the construction process is being supported by the working documentation.
