France’s EDF & American GE Collaborate To Create Nuclear Reactors In India


06/28/2018


With the growing demand of energy in India, the country ties up with American and French experts to create the “biggest” of its kind plant.



EDF, a “French Utility”, along with GE have consented to jointly create “six reactors” as a project on nuclear power. The reactors will be located in the western part of India, which on its completion will become the “biggest” of the kind in the world.
 
With the growing population in the urban area, India is facing a growing demand for energy supply. It is to meet this demand that the country is creating “nuclear power stations”; while in doing so the India is also moving away from “environmentally-damaging coal-fired electricity”. The “European Pressurised Water” reactors will form part of “a 9,900 mw nuclear power project”. The project site is located at the south of Mumbai, Maharashtra.
 
Junior Minister of Atomic Energy in India, Jitendra Singh had stated that by the year of 2031, India has plans of generating nuclear power worth “22,480 mw”, and the above mentioned project is a step in the same direction. EDF will play the role of integrating engineering work during the “entire project” and GE Power on the other hand, will be involved into the designing of the “critical part of the plant” along with supplying the projects’ “main components”.
 
Moreover, GE will give “operational support services” besides organising training sessions for the operators and owners of the plants, so that they can meet the requirements of “state-run Nuclear Power Corp. of India Ltd”.
