Madras Atomic Power Station's 2nd unit to re-start by Sept

Station Director of the Madras Atomic Power Station (MAPS) TJ Kotteeswaran has said that the MAPS' second unit is likely to start functioning only by the end of September, when the installation of a new transformer is expected to be completed. The unit, belonging to India's atomic power plant operator Nuclear Power Corporation of India (NPCIL), was shut down last month after a fire damaged its transformer.

Kotteeswaran said that they have placed an order for a new transformer with the Kochi-based Transformers and Electricals Kerala Ltd. It will take three months for MAPS to restart the unit. By September end the unit is expected to start functioning, he said. The burnt transformer is around 30 years old, and was supplied by Asian power equipment major Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL). Similar transformers are not in its production line.
