Westinghouse Electric Co., a unit of Toshiba, will work with the Nuclear Power Corp. of India to engineer and design six nuclear power plants in India, according to reports.
This agreement was negotiated during a meeting between President Barack Obama and Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi at the White House.
This is the first agreement of its type since a nuclear power deal was struck between the two nations in 2008, however the final contract will not be completed until next year.
White House officials see this project as a way to strengthen ties with India and counterbalance China, which also exports its nuclear energy technology to other nations, and has build nuclear reactors in India.
