Planning of future generating capacity will require careful selection of the size of the next generation of units and an equally judicious selection of the technical (design and fabrication) features of such units. It would be desirable to try out a few units in the 500 MW size range with alternative features and of different manufacturers so that a prudent final judgment can be made on the basis of actual operating/ maintenance experience gathered in the interim period.
