In addition to the framework agreement with NPCIL, EDF has signed two cooperation agreements with French and Indian industrial players, which define the operational basis of the Jaitapur project: in March 2018, EDF and NPCIL signed an agreement known as the Industrial Way Forward Agreement, which defines the industrial framework and schedule of the six EPR reactors in Jaitapur. On its terms, EDF will act as a supplier of EPR technology and will carry out all engineering studies and procurement activities for the first two of the six reactors. Responsibility for certain procurement and study activities for the other four units can be entrusted to local companies, which means that India`s potential location in the last two of the six reactors will reach 60%. As the owner and future operator of the Jaitapur facility, NPCIL will be responsible for obtaining all necessary approvals and certifications in India, as well as the construction of the six reactors and site infrastructure. The signing of the agreement confirmed the objective of starting work in Jaitapur “towards the end of 2018”. In June 2018, GE and EDF signed a strategic cooperation agreement, which the two companies described as “not important in the implementation of the Industrial Way Forward Agreement.” GE Power will design the conventional island of Jaitapur and supply its main components. EDF will be responsible for integrating engineering throughout the project. Bilateral confidence-building measures between India and Pakistan aimed at reducing the prospects for confrontation were limited. In 1990, both sides ratified a treaty not to attack the other`s unassailable nuclear facilities, and in late 1991 they submitted a list of the location of all their nuclear power plants, although the corresponding lists were found to be incorrect. In early 1994, India proposed a bilateral agreement for a “non-first use” of nuclear weapons and an extension of the non-attack treaty to cover civilian and industrial objectives as well as nuclear facilities. The framework agreement provides that EDF submitted a preliminary offer in the weeks following its signing, with the aim of submitting a firm EdF offer towards the end of 2018.
Gorakhpur Haryana Anu Vidyut Pariyojana (GHAVP) in The Fatehabad district of Haryana is a project with four indigenous 700 PHWR units in two phases, and the AEC approved the state`s proposal for the installation of 2800 MWe. The Kakrapar 3/4 and the Rajasthan 7-8 are the reference design. The northern state of Haryana, located in the interior of the country, is one of the most industrialized in the country and has a need of 8900 MWe, but currently produces less than 2000 MWe and imports 4000 MWe.
