The reactor is being developed at Cadarache, France.
JSL senior vice president marketing and supply chain Pankaj Mittal was quoted as saying by Business Standard, "We are very excited about this project and well-equipped in all respects to supply the desired quantity of stainless steel.
Mittal said that the company has already started the supply of stainless steel.

JSL said that France-based Indu steel is the other company selected to provide the high-end steel.
