Manufacturing of components of Atomic plants

A “Programme of Action” for localisation of manufacturing in India for Russian designed nuclear power plants, was signed between Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) and Russia’s Atomic Energy Corporation ‘ROSATOM’ on 24.12.2015. Under the above Programme of Action, both sides agreed to take time-bound specific steps towards finalising the details, including those related to transfer of technology, in consultation with Russian Technology Providers and Indian manufacturers for commencement of localisation in India.

The nuclear power plants at Kudankulam are being set up on technical cooperation basis with shared scope of work between Indian and Russian sides. While construction, equipment erection and commissioning are in the Indian scope, supply of major equipment is in the Russian scope. Some of the equipment is also sourced from within the country. It is planned to progressively increase the share of indigenous supplies in future units to be set up at Kudankulam.
