The world’s biggest nuclear plant looks set to be built in India following the signing of a strategic cooperation agreement between energy giants GE and EDF. The massive project will see the construction of six EPR reactors at a site in Jaitapur in Maharashtra, India. A joint statement from the two companies set out the terms of the proposed project: “This agreement lays the foundations for a long-term partnership concerning the construction of the conventional island on each of the 6 reactor units. GE Power will design the conventional for the Jaitapur nuclear plant and supply its main components. The company will also provide operational support services and a training programme to respond to the requirements of NPCIL, the Indian owner and operator of the future nuclear power plant currently under discussion. EDF will be responsible for engineering integration covering the entire project (nuclear island, conventional island and auxiliary systems) and will provide all the requisite input data.”
