The Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) is planning to undertake the nuclear power plant project in Maharashtra, India.

The project involves the construction of nuclear power plant with the installed power capacity of 9,900MW (6x1650MW). The project is planned to be implemented in two phases.

The first phase includes the construction of two units of nuclear power plant with a total installed capacity of 3,300MW and the second phase includes the construction of four nuclear power units with a total installed capacity of 6,600MW.

In January 2009, a memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed between the companies for building two EPR reactors, each having 1,650MW capacity.

The project received environmental clearance in November 2010. A General Framework Agreement (GFA) and Early Works Agreement (EWA) were signed between NPCIL and AREVA in December 2010.

The GFA covers installation of the initial set of 2x1650MW Evolutionary Pressurized Water Reactors (EPR) including scope of work, division of responsibility, design, materials, technology, services and life time fuel supplies. The EWA relates to preliminary works related to design, engineering and regulatory aspects.

The government of India approved to build six nuclear reactors in partnership with France-based Areva.

Alstom will supply the main electrical equipment for the proposed project. In January 2014, land acquisition for the project was completed.

On April 9, 2015, Pre-Engineering Agreement was signed between NPCIL and Areva.

On April 11, 2015, Larsen & Toubro (L&T) and Areva have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for cooperation to maximize localization for the EPR Nuclear Power Plant.The agreement covers in manufacturing key nuclear island equipment, valves, piping, electrical, instrumentation and engineering work.

On August 6, 2015, the discussions have been held between Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) and M/s AREVA of France for the implementation of the Project. The discussions have covered both technical and commercial aspects of the Project. The schedule for the project implementation will take after the conclusion of these discussions.

On January 26, 2016, Électricité de France (EDF) signed a memorandum of understanding to develop the project. The scope of work under the MoU is also to define technical configuration to meet the Indian statutory and regulatory requirements for certification and design.

In March 2016, the project secured in-principle approval to reactors with foreign technical cooperation from the Government of India.

In July 2016, EDF submitted a fresh techno-commercial proposal for the development of the project.

In December 2016, NPCIL was under the process of negotiations with EDF for financing and finalizing cost of the project.

In July 2017, EDF has submitted a fresh plan to the NPCIL proposing to share a larger role in the engineering aspect of the project and EDF and the NPCIL resolved to sign the General Framework Agreement (GFA) for the project by the end of the year.
