EDF submits offer to build EPR reactors for Jaitapur plant in India

28 Apr 2021

EDF has submitted a binding techno-commercial offer to the Nuclear Power Corporation of India (NPCIL) to construct six EPR reactors at the 9.6GW Jaitapur nuclear power plant in Maharashtra, India.

The offer relates to supply of engineering studies and equipment for the construction of the EPR reactors at the site.

Once operational, the Jaitapur nuclear power plant will be able to produce up to 75TWh per year, which will be enough to cover the annual consumption of 70m Indian households.

The power plant is expected to prevent the emission of 80m tonnes of CO2 annually.

The French electric utility firm said that the binding offer will enable discussions aimed at reaching a binding framework agreement in the coming months.

During the construction phase, a pair of EPR units is expected to create around 25,000 local jobs, in addition to tens of thousands of indirect and induced jobs.
