Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has signed a memorandum of understanding with GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) for cooperation on advanced boiling water reactor (ABWR) and boiling water reactor nuclear power plants.

L&T and GEH say they hope to use indigenous capabilities for the complete construction of nuclear power plants including supply of reactor equipment and systems, valves, electrical and instrumentation products for ABWR plants to set up in India.

Both L&T and GEH are optimistic about the emerging 'nuclear renaissance'.

L&T is a technology, engineering, construction and manufacturing company.

The recent agreement between India and US concerning cooperation in the field of nuclear energy has paved new opportunities for both the countries.
