A spokesperson for NPCIL said, “The prospects of opening up of nuclear trade with India has encouraged several suppliers from around the world to visit and have exploratory discussions.

Major initiatives have been taken to address the challenges. The company has particularly recognised the difficulties of retaining personnel at remote sites and has taken various measures to make working at sites more lucrative.
