Yelabuga, India (Sputnik) May 19, 2015
The second energy block of India's Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant will go on line this summer, Rosatom Deputy Director Alexander Lokshin said Friday.
"The second block [will go on line] this year, but doesn't just depend on us, it also depends on the Indians, but as far as I know, this will be according to the current plans," Lukshin told journalists in the city of Yelabuga in Russia's Republic of Tatarstan.
The Kudankulam NPP's first block went on line at the end of 2014 and is the most powerful nuclear energy facility in India and is being constructed under Russian technical assistance.
"We're not conducting the construction [of the power plant], the Indians are so they'll define the schedule, but it will be this year for certain," Lokshin added.
