New Delhi intends to construct more 1,000-megawatt nuclear power plants together with Moscow, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said.

India plans to build additional 1,000-megawatt nuclear power plants with Russia, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said at a ceremony dedicated to the handover of the Kudankulam nuclear power plant’s first unit with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday.

"In years ahead we are determined to pursue an ambitious agenda of nuclear power generation. At Kundakulam alone, five more units of 1,000 megawatt each are planned. In our journey of cooperation [with Russia], we plan to build a series of bigger nuclear power plants," Modi said.
