About the project
Kudankulam is the first nuclear power plant in India to use imported PWR technology. It is planned to launch six VVER-1000 reactors with an installed capacity of 6,000 MW. The station was built in cooperation with Atomstroyexport, a Russian state-owned company and NPCIL.
Nuclear power is an industry that imposes, perhaps, the highest requirements for products supplied to its facilities, from product quality to timing.
A distinctive feature of the Russian project is the high level of equipment of power units with diagnostic systems, which make it possible to form an anticipatory reaction of the plant operating and maintenance personnel to symptoms of deviations in equipment operation.
Many Russian enterprises supply equipment to NPPs, for example, reactors were manufactured by Izhora plants, a circular overhead crane - by Uralmash (developed by NPO VNIIPTMASH), and sorbent unloading devices - by Ural Gas Cleaning Equipment Plant.
SVEL has supplied converter transformers for the excitation system of synchronous generators to NPPs.
The power of the supplied transformers is 160 KVA. Voltage class - 0.38kV.
