The reactor pressure vessel (RPV) has been installed at unit 4 of the Kudankulam NPP under construction in the southern state of Tamil Nadu in India with the assistance of Rosatom. The RPV installation was carried out using open top technology, which had already been used at Kudankulam 3. This involves installing reactor components through the open dome, which significantly reduces the time required for the operation. Preparation was carried out in record time, according to Rosatom. In the morning the equipment was transferred to a vertical position, then the crane lifted it to a height of 50 metres and lowered it into the reactor building. Installation of key equipment such as steam generators, the main circulation pumping units and the pressure compensator will now begin.
