Atomic power generation company, the Nuclear Power Corporation of India, (NPCIL) is planning to spend about Rs 18,000 crore as capital expenditure in FY22.

The first pour of concrete for construction of two more 1,000 MW units (Units 5 and 6) at Kudankulam is expected to happen in 2021 and the 700 MW unit at Kakrapar Atomic Power Station (KAPS) will begin commercial generation in September 2021.

The company in FY21 will be spending about Rs 18,000 crore as capex on its ongoing projects. The funding will be through a mix of internal accruals, Central government budgetary support and long-term borrowings.

The first two will be about 30 percent and the borrowings will be about 70 percent of the project cost.

The major ongoing projects are the construction of two 1,000 MW units (units 3 and 4) at Kudankulam in Tamil Nadu, four 700 MW units -- two each at Rajasthan Atomic Power Station (RAPS - Units 7 and 8) and KAPS (Units 3 and 4).

Some small investments will happen in Gorakhpur Haryana Anu Vidyut Pariyojana (GHAVP-2x700 MW) and first pour of concrete is also planned in 2021.

These apart, 10 more indigenously designed 700 MW units will be set up in a fleet mode and NPCIL is preparing the different sites to house them.

The Kaiga site in Karnataka is getting ready and the land acquisition in Chutka in Madhya Pradesh is in advanced stages. The company has received environment clearances for some projects and the process is on for others.

The 10 units are planned to be completed progressively by 2031 involving an outlay of Rs 1,05,000 crore with per MW cost estimated at about Rs 15 crore.

According to India Ratings & Research, the NPCIL board had approved a capex of Rs 13,000 crore for FY21.

The KAPS 3 unit has been connected to the grid in January 2021 and  the power generation is being increased slowly. The generation level is now at 50 percent and by September 2021 commercial generation may begin.

The grid connectivity of Unit 4 at KAPS and Unit 7 at RAPS will happen in 2022.

On the status of the French company EDF's techno-commercial offer for building six reactors of 1,600 MW each in Jaitapur in Maharashtra,  a committee has been set up to study the same.

NPCIL with a total capacity of 6,780 MW had a plant load factor (PLF) of 81 percent in FY21.
