The Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) has decided to go ahead with the land acquisition process for the Kovvada nuclear power plant in spite of the developments in the Westinghouse Electric Corporation. Westinghouse, the U.S. nuclear wing of Japanese nuclear major Toshiba, which filed for bankruptcy, was expected to construct India’s biggest atomic power plant in Kovvada of Ranasthalam mandal in Srikakulam district.
Reacting to the issue, NPCIL’s Kovvada project director G.V. Ramesh said that the land acquisition process would continue as the financial issues of Westinghouse would not have any immediate impact on the proposed project.
“The project may be delayed by just three months. We are hopeful of smooth technology transfer as per the previous agreements,” he said. Meanwhile, anti-nuclear activists are in a jubilant mood with the latest development in Westinghouse. They hope that the Centre would shelve the project permanently.
