India's largest power utility may finally be actively moving into nuclear power after over a decade of moribund discussions with state-owned Nuclear Power Corp of India Ltd. (NPCIL) to work together on nuclear newbuilds. Both NPCIL and NTPC Ltd., a government-run utility highly dependent on coal-burning plants, are now in talks for partnering on twin 700 megawatt indigenous pressurized heavy water reactor (IPHWR) newbuilds at Gorakhpur, in the northern state of Haryana. Solidifying this partnership may help NPCIL stitch similar deals with other state firms, which are lining up billions of dollars of investment for net-zero emissions goals. If successful the nuclear utility could attract considerable funds for its ambitious capacity expansion plans.
