Larsen & Toubro (L&T) and Rolls Royce have inked an MoU for co-operation to effectively address the project need for light water reactors (LWR) in India and overseas.
LWR technology is in use in over 60 per cent of civil nuclear power plants operating world-wide.
L&T is an $8.5-billion engineering and construction company and Rolls-Royce is a global power systems firm.
The two companies have agreed to collaborate on areas including nuclear instrumentation and controls, engineered products and systems, reactor components, engineering services, in-service reactor support and waste management, a press release issued on Thursday said.
The agreement between Rolls-Royce and L&T follows the recent bilateral Civil Nuclear Co-operation Declaration by the Indian and UK Governments, which enables UK and Indian industries to engage in civil nuclear commerce, the release said.
