Tarapur Atomic Power Station (TAPS) near here generated 28 per cent of India's total nuclear energy production in the fiscal ended March 31.

The total nuclear power generated in the country in the year under review was 35,333 MUs (million units). Of this, TAPS accounted for 9,884 MUs or 27.97 per cent, Nuclear Power Corporation of India (NPCIL) said in a report on its website.

The PSU operates all atomic power facilities in the country.

There was less than 1 per cent increase in power generation from TAPS during the year as compared to the previous fiscal, the report said.

Two Boiling Water Reactors (BWR) of 160 MWe capacity were commissioned at Tarapur on October 28, 1969, while one each of Pressurised Heavy Water Reactor (PHWR) 540 MWe started operation on September 12, 2005 and August 18, 2006.

These four reactors have a total power generation capacity of 1,400 MWe.
