Russia has delivered three batches of nuclear fuel to the Kudankulam nuclear power plant in India, Itar-Tass reported Monday.

The nuclear fuel has been delivered to the plant "in the form of fuel clusters with uranium content not higher than 4.1 percent," an official of the Russian nuclear monopoly Atomenergoprom was quoted as saying. The official indicated that the fuel could not be used for nuclear weapons.

The first batch of 40 nuclear fuel rods was taken to the plant in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu last week and all of the nuclear fuel will be put into the reactor by the end of this year, Itar-Tass said.

The construction of the Kudankulam nuclear power plant was launched in 2002 under a bilateral agreement between India and the Soviet Union in 1988.

The Russian company Atomstroyexport is building two light-water reactors with a capacity of 1,000 megawatts each for the Indian plant. The first is expected to run next January.
