Manufacturing of Atomic plant components localised
India´s Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) signed a Programme of Action (PoA) for the localisation of atomic plant components with Russia´s Atomic Energy Corporation. Under the PoA, both sides would execute time-bound specific steps towards finalising the details, in consultation with Russian Technology Providers and Indian manufacturers for commencement of localisation in India.
Currently, the nuclear power plants at Kudankulam are being set up in cooperation with Russia, wherein the construction, equipment erection and commissioning are in the Indian scope, while supply of major equipment is in the Russian scope. DAE is planning to progressively increase the share of indigenous supplies in future units to be set up at Kudankulam.
