Indian cabinet okays 10 nuclear reactors

The Indian cabinet approved on Wednesday the setting up of 10 indigenous Pressurised Heavy Water Reactors (PHWRs) for nuclear power generation.

“The cabinet has approved to install 10 indigenously built PWHRs,” Union Minister Piyush Goyal said at a press conference after the cabinet meeting presided over by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Goyal, who is Union Power and Coal Minister, said the new PWHRs will generate 7,000MW power.

At present India generates 6,780 megawatts of nuclear power, says an IANS report.

Goyal also said nuclear reactors which will produce 6,700 megawatts are under implementation and expected to be completed by 2021-22.
