The Jaitapur Nuclear Power Plant (JNPP) project is moving forward with a 5th EDF Suppliers’ Day organized in Mumbai on the 9th of December 2021 in hybrid mode from 13h30 to 17h00 IST.

This follows EDF’s submission of its binding Techno-Commercial Offer (TCO) on 22 April 2021 to NPCIL in order to supply the engineering and procurement scope for the construction of 6 EPR reactors at the Jaitapur site, Maharashtra. This was a major milestone for EDF, its partners and the French nuclear industry leading to discussions aimed at converging towards a General Framework Agreement (GFA) in the coming months.

This Suppliers’ Day will gather various Indo-French suppliers meant to be part of what will be the largest nuclear power plant project built on one single site. The event will be held both physically in Mumbai and through a dedicated digital platform for people to connect from anywhere in the world.

The event will be organised under the high patronage of H.E. Mr Emmanuel Lenain, Ambassador of France to India. Mr. Vakisasai Ramany, Senior Vice President – Development at EDF New Nuclear Projects & Engineering - will lead the EDF Suppliers’ Day together with Dr. Fawzi Issa, Director of EDF India Liaison Office. The Suppliers’ Day will focus on the JNPP project’s status and way forward along with the business opportunities related to the localisation and procurement process for the project. Senior representatives from EDF HQ (Development Directorate and Project Directorate), Edvance (Nuclear Island engineering arm of EDF), GIFEN1 and I2EN2 will deliver their presentations along with some testimonies and round table discussions from Indo-French companies. We invite interested and potential suppliers in India working in the nuclear field to kindly register themselves on the following website in order to view the program and schedule B2B meetings with EDF and French companies online. They shall also receive a webinar invitation link from Business France to attend the EDF Suppliers’ Day on 9th December 2021.
