Tvel said that in comparison to the UTVS fuel model, which is currently used at Kudankulam under an earlier supply contract, the TVS-2M fuel assemblies are “more reliable and cost-effective”.

The new-generation assemblies have higher uranium capacity, fuel burn-up, and in-pile robustness than UTVS fuel, Tvel said. They can help increase Kudankulam’s fuel cycle from 12 to 18 months.
