On April 5, a joint report on the final acceptance of unit No. 1 of Kudankulam NPP was signed by the representatives of JSC Atomstroyexport and Nuclear Power Corporation of India (NPCIL). From now on, the Indian party bears full responsibility for further operation of the unit.
By signing this document, the Russian and Indian parties recorded the fulfillment of all the warranty terms and obligations of the contractor (JSC Atomstroyexport) and its subcontractors, including Power Machines, under the contracts for the construction of unit No. 1 of Kudankulam NPP.
Power Machines has delivered two complete high-speed steam turbines with a capacity of 1000 MW each, two turbogenerators with the same capacity, as well as auxiliary equipment to Kudankulam NPP, which is currently under construction. The operation of Kudankulam NPP during the warranty period confirmed the high quality and reliability of the equipment produced by Power Machines — a leading engineering and machine-building company, which is ready to solve challenging tasks in cooperation with partners.
On March 30, 2017 another significant event took place: a joint protocol was signed on the preliminary acceptance of power unit No. 2 of Kudankulam NPP, which is currently covered by the guarantee obligations of the general designer and equipment suppliers from Russia, represented by ACE Engineering Company. The warranty period will last until March 30, 2018, after which the parties will sign a report on the final acceptance of power unit No. 2 by the Indian customer.
