Nuclear Power Generation Rose 4% In FY15
Nuclear Power Corporation of India’s (NPCIL’s) power generation rose four per cent to 35,592 million units (MUs) in 2014-15 against 34,228 MUs in 2013-14. The rise was attributed to increase in the fuel supply. The government-run company says capacity utilisation in August was 78 per cent and is expected to rise in the coming months, as some units were under a planned shutdown. Kudankulam-I, for instance, has been shut for refuelling since June 24 and is expected to restart generation by the end of this month. Total income rose 2.3 per cent to Rs 9,263 crore; net income was down four per cent to Rs 2,201 crore in 2014-15 from 2013-14.
