On the way to India, the vessel will call at the port of Hamburg to collect a batch of equipment that has been fabricated by European manufacturers and then will set course for India.
Power units No 3,4 and 5,6 are the second and the third stages of Kudankulam NPP constructed under AES-92 design with VVER-1000 (V-412) reactor type. The technical solutions implemented in Kudankulam design characterize further evolutionary development of NPPs with VVER-reactors of high power and transition to creation of a new, reliable, safe and feasible power unit.
New power units of Kudankulam NPP comply with the most up-to-date safety requirements of IAEA.
