The power generation in the second unit of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KNPP) in Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu was stopped temporarily today following snag in the turbine of the unit.
The snag developed last evening and production was stopped from today. A senior official in-charge of the unit said, the unit had been taken up for repair.
The power generation in the second unit became operational on March 31. The unit was generating 930 MW per day.
KNPP units 1 and 2 have been built with Russian collaboration. The two units are the largest nuclear power generation units in the country. Units 3 and 4 are under construction.
