The first unit of India’s Kudankulam nuclear power plant is working at approximately 70 percent of its total capacity, but is expected to reach full capacity by April.
R S Sundar, the site director, told the India Times that the facility is currently generating up to 670-MW of electricity. He added the site will reach its full capacity of 1,000-MW by April. Sundar said they are currently awaiting clearance from the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board.
When the plant is fully operational, the city of Tamil Nadu will receive 512-MW of power produced.
