India to construct 12 more nuclear power plants

India will have 12 more nuclear power stations shortly to improve the power situation and also ensure there is a free flow of uninterrupted power supply for both Industries and residential usage.

KN Vyas, Secretary, Dept of Atomic Energy and Chairman, Atomic Energy Commission, India says, "Nuclear Technology helps in the betterment of lives through varied usages and is an irreplaceable source of clean, pollution-free energy." He was speaking at the International Atom Expo, sponsored by Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation, which was held in Sochi, Russia recently.

He cited the record run of Kaiga Nuclear Power station as an example. A small unit of indigenously-developed 220-250 MW reactor has completed 962 days of uninterrupted run at about 99.3 per cent of capacity. “The amount of electricity it has been able to give in tremendous,” Vyas contended.

The first stage of India’s indigenous nuclear power program has now attained maturity with 18 operating Pressurized Heavy Water Reactors (PHWRs). Indian Nuclear Industry has got a lease of life following the sanction of Mr.Narendra Modi’s Government for the construction of 10 Pressurised Heavy Water Reactors (PHWRs) in fleet mode. Alongside this, plans are afoot for the construction of two light water reactors.
