Rosatom and India have begun substantive negotiations on the selection of a site for the construction of a new nuclear power plant in the country, said the general director of the Russian state corporation Rosatom Alexei Likhachev.
“We, of course, are now discussing in detail [with India] a new site for further expansion of our construction site,” Likhachev noted in an interview with the Russia 24 TV channel.
The head of Rosatom also added that the nuclear projects of the state corporation in China are ahead of schedule.
Earlier NEWS.ru wrote that the construction of the first and second power units of the nuclear power plant in the Belarusian territory is proceeding according to the schedule.
Russian workers have been building a nuclear power plant near the town of Ostrovets in the Grodno region since 2011. The first power unit is planned to be commissioned in 2020. Now the Belarusian NPP is loading nuclear fuel into the reactor. It will be connected to the country’s power grid in the IV quarter of this year. And in February 2021, the reactor will be working at full power.
