Achieving another feat in the field of nuclear energy, 1000 MWe second reactor of Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project (KNPP) commenced power generation at commercial level at 11 am on March 31, 2017.

The reactor had attained criticality some nine months back on July 10, 2016 followed by its synchronisation with southern grid on August 29, 2016 at 1117 hours. The commencement of commercial production by KNPP-2 is expected to boost the atomic power generation in the country.
Unit-2 belonging to Light Water Reactor category of KNPP has been established in collaboration with Russian Federation. The unit came to its full capacity of generating 1000 MWe on January 21, 2017.
The tariff of each unit of the power generated by this unit will be Rs 4. As the first KNPP unit is already generating over 800 MWe power, the combined power generation by both KNPP units will now be over 1800 MWe. However, with KNPP-2 contribution, country's total nuclear energy mix is likely to touch 6,780MW.
KNPP-2 was dedicated to Indo-Russian frienship and Cooperation jointly by PM Narendra Modi and Russian premier Vladimir Putin on October 15, last year through video conferencing at Goa BRICS meet.KNPP-1 & 2 are country's largest power generation units, KNPP-3 & 4 are under construction.
