GE eyes India nuclear reactor deal
London, September 12, 2009
GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy said on Friday it was in talks with India's state-owned nuclear power body to build at least 6 nuclear reactors.
Danny Roderick, vice president of GE Hitachi's new plant projects, was talking to Reuters on the sidelines of the World Nuclear Association Symposium in London.
In January, the joint venture between U.S conglomerate General Electric Co and Japan's Hitachi, said it could supply India with its advanced boiling water reactors (ABWR) of up to about 9 gigawatts, once regulatory hurdles were cleared.
Roderick also said by 2030 it expected to set up 15-18 reactors in Europe, including Nordic countries and Britain.
'We can see building 15-18 units in Europe between now and 2030,' the executive said.
The company is currently building four ABWRs - a third generation reactor - including two in Taiwan and two in Japan.-Reuters
