KudankulamUnit 2 at the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant was synchronised with the southern grid on Monday, more than a month after it attained criticality.

''At 11.17am on 29-08-2016, the unit was synchronised with the southern grid. At present, the unit is generating 200MW of power. When it was synchronized, the unit was producing less than 100MW. Slowly, the generation has been picking up,'' Kudankulam site director R S Sundar told media.

Soon after attaining criticality, the unit went into several tests and the authorities were awaiting approval from the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) for synchronising it with the grid.

''The unit is being watched closely. After it attains a particular level of generation, it will be shut down for tests. It would be restarted once again, and the power generation will be increased. The unit is expected to attain full capacity in a few months after which it would be commissioned formally," said Sundar.

Tamil Nadu is the major beneficiary after the unit is synchronised with the grid. "Tamil Nadu will get 55% of the power generated here. Even now, the state is getting 55% power from here," he said.
