The Nuclear Power Centre (NPC) was established under NNRI in February, 2014 to provide leading support to the Nuclear Power Programme Organization (NPPO) in the delivery of the Nuclear Power Infrastructure Development Programme. It has an additional mandate to conduct directly-related nuclear power research, development and engineering work. It also aims to develop technical and business capacity of its members and relevant stakeholders to ensure increased local participation in the future nuclear industry. Working with a wide-range stakeholder base, the centre serves as the integral core of the Nuclear Power Programme.
