In Goa, Putin is expected to inaugurate units 3 and 4, and launch the second unit of the Kudankulam nuclear power plant.
The construction of the Kudankulam NPP was initially agreed by the Soviet Union and India back in 1988, but the project was in limbo. The Nuclear Power Corporation of India and Russia's nuclear agency Rosatom launched a much-delayed joint project to build the Kudankulam NPP in 2012. The first unit reached full capacity in July 2014, and is currently India's most powerful reactor with a maximum operating capacity of 1,000 megawatt.
In late 2015, Russia and India announced plans to construct from five to six Kudankulam units, with units 3 and 4 being completed in 2016.
