China plans to build its first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and submarines as part of the PLA Navy's transformation as a major blue-water force, the state-owned defence company said, amid growing Chinese assertiveness in the strategic Indo-Pacific region. China commissioned its first-ever aircraft carrier, Liaoning, a refurbished Soviet ship it bought from Ukraine, in 2012. Its second carrier and the first domestically built carrier, known as Type 001A, was launched in April last year. A third aircraft carrier, Type 002, is said to be under construction at the Shanghai Jiangnan Shipyard Group, although it has yet to be officially confirmed by authorities.

India, Russia, B'desh sign pact for Rooppur atomic plant 1.3.2018 General News
Indian companies can now participate in construction and installation works in the "non-critical" category for the Rooppur nuclear power plant in Bangladesh, Russian atomic energy agency Rosatom said today. The Rooppur project is the first initiative under an Indo-Russian deal to undertake atomic energy projects in third countries. This will also be the first time Indian companies will be able to participate in a nuclear power project abroad. India is not a member of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) and hence cannot participate directly in construction of atomic power reactors. According to Rosatom, India, Bangladesh and Russia today signed an agreement to allow Indian firms in construction and installation works in the "non-critical" category for the Rooppur nuclear power plant project in northwest Bangladesh. The Memorandum of Understanding, signed in Moscow, sets a framework for interaction of Russian contractor, and Indian and Bangladeshi experts in the implementation of works ...

NPCIL moves SC, seeks 5 years to set up AFR unit 28.2.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
With the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) seeking five more years’ time from the Supreme Court for setting up ‘Away From Reactor’ (AFR) facility to store the spent nuclear fuel (SNF) from the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plants, an environmental group has sought immediate suspension of operation of the units 1 and 2 and stoppage of construction works in the units 3 and 4. The NPCIL has moved the apex court recently, seeking an extension till April 2022 to set up AFR as the court’s five-year deadline ends in May this year. The Court in May 2013 had directed NPCIL to set up the AFR facility in five years, while dismissing the petition filed by an environmentalist challenging the KKNPP plant, based on environmental concerns and safety of local people.  The AFR facility for the KKNPP units “is a challenging task on account of no previous experience with long-term storage requirements of high burnup Russian type PWR (Pressurised Water Reactor) fuel, and thereby being sort of a ‘first of its kind ...

CISF headless for over a month; govt yet to appoint DG 25.2.2018 General News
The country's front line security force against terror threats at civilian airports and strategic nuclear and aerospace installations, the CISF, is working without a regular chief for over a month as the Centre is yet to appoint a Director General (DG). The about 1.80-lakh personnel strong force has been without a regular DG since January 22 after serving chief O P Singh was repatriated to his cadre, on the request of the Uttar Pradesh government, and appointed the state's director general of police (DGP). The process of decision-making and making large policy moves in the force has slowed down owing to the absence of the designated chief, official sources said. "This is not a healthy precedent at all and it is happening again and again in the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs). This shows that the government has utter disregard for the importance of such an important paramilitary force," retired IPS officer Prakash Singh told PTI. Singh, who has served as the DGP of the Uttar ...
