BHEL and NPCIL sign MoU for PHWR technology based nuclear power plants

Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) and Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) have entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to jointly pursue business opportunities in the area of nuclear power plants based on pressurised heavy water reactor (PHWR) technology.

Under the MoU, BHEL and NPCIL will jointly explore opportunities for development of nuclear power projects with a view to reduce project gestation time. This collaboration will pave the way for early implementation of non-polluting and long-cycle nuclear power projects, which will also complement the G20 theme of environmental sustainability and contribute towards a cleaner and greener future.
