ROSATOM presented its solutions for small NPPs and balanced nuclear fuel cycle to Indian partners.

ROSATOM took part in India’s biggest nuclear energy conference INSIC-2023, which ended in Mumbai on December 15. The event was organized jointly by the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) and the Indian Nuclear Society (INS).

The conference brought together more than 450 representatives of 30 key government agencies and private companies operating in the nuclear industry.

The conference focused on the need to increase the share of nuclear energy in India’s energy mix to achieve carbon neutrality goals. India has set an ambitious target of reducing CO2 emissions by 50% by 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality by 2070. Nuclear power is to be an important element of this transition, replacing aging thermal power plants. Seven power units intended for large NPPs are currently under construction in India.

“We are convinced that nuclear energy is the basis of the low-carbon mix, and small nuclear generation, as one of the reliable technological solutions, will take its rightful place in the nuclear energy of the future along with large plants,” said Alexander Volgin, Project Director at ROSATOM in his speech on Russian solutions in the field of small nuclear power plants (SNPP).
