Plans & Construction

Russia may build between 20 and 24 nuclear reactor units in India against the 14 to 16 already agreed, the Times of India said, citing Russia’s ambassador Alexander Kadakin.

The plans will be discussed during Russian president Vladimir Putin’s visit to Delhi on Thursday. “We have big plans for nuclear energy cooperation”, Mr Kadakin was quoted as saying. “Russia had agreed to help India build 14 to 16 nuclear units. Now it seems that demand is much bigger and this may rise to between 20 and 24 units.”
