Chennai: Power generation in the first unit of Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant, which was shut down after running for a couple of hours on Tuesday, would resume soon after completion of preparatory work and certain mandatory procedures, a senior official of KNPP said here today.




“Preparatory works are now on. We are following procedures. The reactor continues to be operational. However, there are also certain mandatory procedures to be done after which power generation will resume soon,” KNPP Site Director R S Sundar told PTI.

The first unit, which was synchronised on October 22 with the southern power grid, produced 165 MW power in two hours before it was shut down.

KNPP had said power would be increased gradually towards the 1000 MW benchmark by December this year once the unit attains operational stability.
