Generation from India’s 21 nuclear power reactors reached 35,333 GWh in financial year 2013-14, state-owned Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) said 1 April.

This represents an increase of 7.5% over the 32,860 GWh generated in 2012-13, according to figures from the Central Electricity Authority (CEA), and was above the FY target of 35,200 GWh, again according to CEA figures.

NPCIL said that generation was achieved from ‘the safe and reliable operation’ of 21 nuclear power reactors, including unit 1 of the Kudankulam plant (1000 MW), which was connected to the grid on 22 October 2013.

India currently has 4730 MW of installed nuclear capacity.
