India closer to building world's biggest nuclear plant


  • French energy group EDF took a key step towards helping to build the world's biggest nuclear power plant in India, a project blocked for years by nuclear events and local opposition.
  • The company said it had filed a binding offer to supply engineering studies and equipment to build 6, 3rd-generation EPR reactors in Jaitapur, western India.   
  • Once finished, the facility would provide 10 gigawatts (GW) of electricity, roughly enough for 70 million households.
