Brighton Group of USA signed a memorandum of understanding with the Andhra Pradesh government for setting up a Rs 2,880 crore nuclear power equipment manufacturing facility near Visakhapatnam. The facility will manufacture three to four nuclear reactor units per annum at a cost of $200 million each. Brighton has sought Special Economic Zone status for their facility which would be ready for commercialisation in 24-30 months. The proposed plant will be set up on an 800 acre site at Nakkapalli. The Indian plant will be a replica of the Chinese one and will service not only the Indian nuclear power plants but also the international markets.
