Regional Centre Rosatom South Asia along with ASE JSC (part of The Rosatom State Corporation Engineering Division) participated in the 12th Nuclear Energy Conclave, organized by Indian Energy Forum in New Delhi, India on 2 March 2023.
Speaker from Rosatom, Ms Olga Lukerchik, Chief Expert, ASE JSC participated in panel discussion “Equipment Manufacturing Capacity build up and expectations from DAE for Atamnirbharta”. Olga spoke about localization opportunities for the 5th and 6th Units of Kudankulam as well as the second site of Russian Design Nuclear Power Plant, which is currently under negotiations between Russian and Indian Government.
“Undoubtedly, an important issue is the involvement of Indian manufacturers in the Kudankulam NPP construction project. The successful operation of the 1st and 2nd units, part of the supplies for which were carried out by Indian companies may be considered as a positive example of our cooperation today. We set ourselves the goal of expanding the opportunities for Indian companies to participate in Rosatom projects. In order to make this possible, it is necessary to carry out work on the harmonization of regulatory and technical requirements between manufacturers and project documentation. With the active support of our Indian partners, I am confident that this challenging undertaking will succeed.” – shared Olga in her presentation at the panel.
The event hosted more than 100 senior representatives from leading Indian and foreign agencies and companies in the nuclear field. Along with Rosatom speaker, the session was attended by representatives from Department of Atomic Energy, Nuclear Power Corporation of India, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, BHEL, Larsen & Toubro and other leading enterprises.
