The controversy-embroiled Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project will once again miss its commissioning target as the time frame of commissioning the first unit has been revised to the new year.
Commercial operation of the 1,000-MW first unit, where 99.65 per cent of physical progress has been completed, is expected to take place in January 2013, the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited said. Minister of State in the PMO V Narayanasamy had informed the Lok Sabha last week that Unit-I was likely to be commissioned by December-end.
Similarly, the commercial operation of the second unit has been fixed for August next year. "Each and every step of ours is being monitored by the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board," sources at the plant said.
