Powering ahead full steam
Indian electrical equipment industry, broadly classified as generation equipment and transmission and distribution (T&D) equipment, manufactures products ranging from high- technology equipment to low-technology electrical components.
A buoyant market ahead
One of the essential components of a thermal or nuclear power plant is the cooling tower. Even in the modern age of renewable energy, solar thermal power plant requires a cooling tower application, though not in the same size and shape as that of a thermal or nuclear power station.
Kudankulam NPP Units 5 and 6 entering implementation
Three main contracts for Units 5 and 6 of the Kudankulam nuclear power plant were signed between ASE Group of Companies (a part of ROSATOM State Atomic Energy Corporation) and the NPCIL on July 31, 2017. The contracts are: for supply of the equipment with long manufacturing cycle, for the first priority design works and for supply of the working documentation.
K-plant to match world´s biggest
On the back of positive developments for the Kudankulam nuclear project, the atomic power plant is set to join the big leagues.
Kudankulam nuclear power plant to match world's biggest
On the back of positive developments for the Kudankulam nuclear project, the atomic power plant is set to join the big leagues. With six units and a capacity generation of 6,000 MW, the project will be similar in scale to the Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine, which supplies half of the country’s power and is the 5th largest nuclear plant in the world.
KKNPP´s power production reaches peak
Power production at Unit-I of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KKNPP) has reached its full capacity of 1,000 MW. Power generation at the plant had been marred by breakdowns in the recent past, including one as recently as February 4, when the unit was shut down following a steam leak in the feed water system in the turbine building.
Hot run of Unit II at Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant
The ´hot run´ of Unit II of Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant would begin next week while preliminary work on construction of the third unit would start in March 2015. ´The Unit II hot run will begin soon and preliminary work for construction of third reactor will begin on March 2015.
Goa asks Centre to allot 100 MW
With an aim to gain more power in the state, the Goa Government has requested the Centre to allot at least 100 MW power from unallocated capacities of coal base or nuclear base stations such as Kaiga nuclear power plant to cope with the shortfall and also provide financial assistance for a few schemes.
