SC rejects petitioner's plea to close down Kudankulam plant, grants time till 2022 to build AFR facility 2.7.2018 DNA: Money
The Supreme Court today directed the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) to set up a facility for safe storage of radio-active spent nuclear fuel at Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KKNPP) by April 2022.

Russian Government run atomic energy corporation 'ROSATOM' 24.5.2018 General News
World's First Floating Nuclear Power Plant (FNPP) 'Akademik Lomonosov' has been developed by ROSATOM, the Russian State run Atomic Energy Corporation.The FNPP was designed to make it possible to supply electricity to hard-to-reach areas, regardless of transport infrastructure, landscape, and cost of fuel delivery. The reactor have the potential to work particularly well in regions with extended coastlines, power supply shortages, and limited access to electrical grids.Up to 40 percent of the cost of fossil fuel-based electricity generation is attributed to the price of coal, oil or gas, as well as to the cost of their delivery. This figure is even higher for especially remote locations. The small size, light weight, and fixed cost of the FNPP eliminate many such challenges. The small nuclear reactor can operate non-stop without the need for refueling for three to five years, thereby considerably reducing the cost of electricity generation.The nuclear floating unit is equipped with two
