Kudankulam plant to be commissioned in two weeks

The much-delayed Kudankulam project in Tamil Nadu is set to be commissioned within the next two weeks as nuclear scientists have entered the final lap of a series of tests on its safety and efficacy, Ratan Kumar Sinha, Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission said in Kolkata recently.

Sinha said all possible care was being taken to see that all the processes are followed precisely. Engineers at Kudankulam have done the hot pressurisation based on certain observations. The engineers want to be very sure that all the processes are perfect, Sinha said.

India is building two 1,000 mw nuclear power plants at Kudankulam with Russian collaboration. Talks are on with Russia for building more reactors at the site which can accommodate six units. Last month, the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) had granted permission for the ‘second heat up’, under which all systems of the entire nuclear power plant will be put to test to demonstrate its operability and safety.
