The government has decided that all future foreign atomic reactors in India will have a capacity to generate 1200 Mw and above, in a bid to augment nuclear power generation.
“We already have foreign power plants with a capacity of 1,000 Mw (Kudankulam). The technology too has advanced that we have reactors with such a capacity. If we are installing them, then might as well have reactors that can generate more power and make optimum use of it,” a senior government official said.
