Power generation at units 1 and 2 of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KKNPP) touched the maximum level of 2000 MW, a senior KKNPP official said.

KKNPP Site Director SV Jinnah said though the maximum capacity of each unit was 1000 MW, they had reached the full capacity by 3.30 AM on Tuesday.

He further said the first Unit had so far generated 16,079 million units while the second unit had generated 4,784 units, since its commission.

“It was a major feat as the two units of the power plant had generated 2000 MW. This is the only nuclear power station in the country to generate 2000 MW in the country,” he added.
