 EDF, India Sign Agreement to Build Six Nuclear Power Plants

EDF Energy signed a memorandum of understanding to build six nuclear power plants in India.
The French utility signed the MOU with Nuclear Power Corp. of India Ltd. (NPCIL) to build six European Pressurized Reactors (EPRs) at Jaitapur in western India. According to Reuters, EDF will take over the delayed project from Areva, which is selling its nuclear reactor business to EDF this year.
In April, Areva and NPCIL signed a pre-engineering agreement to prepare the license for Areva’s EPR. A General Framework Agreement for construction of the first two EPRs was signed in December 2010.
