EDF’s 5th Suppliers' Day in India
9 December 2021
In the framework of the Jaitapur Nuclear Power Plant (JNPP) project, the 5th edition of the EDF Suppliers’ Day took place on the 9th of December 2021, organized by Business France, in full digital mode due to the pandemic context. More than 150 persons, 80 Indian companies and more than 30 French companies participated in the event through our dedicated digital platform further strengthening the Indo-French industrial cooperation for JNPP.
The Suppliers’ Day took place under the high patronage of H.E Emmanuel Lenain, Ambassador of France to India. It was a great opportunity to share the tangible achievements following EDF’s binding offer submission on April 2021 and to highlight the outstanding localisation opportunities made possible for Indian companies. The Suppliers’ Day allowed the sharing and testimony of Indo-French collaboration already in place for the JNPP project with the active participation of GE Power, Assystem, Tata Consulting Engineers, Larsen & Toubro Heavy Engineering, Prysmian, Schneider Electric, Fuji Electric France, GIFEN & I2EN.
EDF submits to the Indian nuclear operator NPCIL the French binding techno-commercial offer to build six EPRs at the Jaitapur site
22 April 2021
On 22 April 2021, EDF submitted to NPCIL the French binding offer to supply engineering studies and equipment for the construction of six EPR reactors at the Jaitapur site, Maharashtra, India. This major milestone for EDF, its partners and the French nuclear industry will enable discussions aimed at converging towards a binding framework agreement in the coming months.
The offer is the culmination of the work carried out jointly with NPCIL further to the signature of the Industrial Way Forward Agreement on 10 March 2018 in Delhi in the presence of the Prime Minister of the Republic of India and of the President of the French Republic, and to the submission of EDF's non-binding proposal at the end of 2018. On that basis, the offer from EDF and its partners includes:
- the detailed technical configuration of the nuclear reactors, taking into account the information provided by NPCIL on the Jaitapur site conditions and the joint comprehensive work performed by EDF and NPCIL;
- the associated comprehensive commercial terms and conditions for the supply of engineering studies and equipment for six EPR reactors.
