Deal to supply fuel to Tarapur symbolic

N. Ravi

WASHINGTON DC: The Tarapur nuclear power plant had long gone past its intended life cycle and the agreement to supply fuel to the plant was more of symbolic than real long-term value. The joint statement, however, went far beyond fuel supply to providing India access to the whole range of civilian nuclear plants, material and technology.

Asked about the commercial benefits to the U.S. from the deal, the officials said the American nuclear industry was not geared for immediate exports but there was undoubtedly a commercial interest over the long term.

The French nuclear industry could be an immediate supplier of equipment and technology.

As regards fuel, the U.S. supplies would be much cheaper than the French.
