India has received the first consignment of uranium for the second unit of the 2,000-MW Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project in Tamil Nadu from Russia, a top official of the project developer has said.
This is the first consignment of the light enriched uranium for the second unit of the Kudankulam project. Several more consignments of the fuel will come from Russia for the project, according to the official.
NPCIL is building the Kudankulam project, with Russia supplying plant and fuel for the reactor’s life time. Fuel for the first Kudankulam unit came from Russia in early 2008.
