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. It rejected the plea of the petitioner to close down Kudankulum nuclear plant out of safety concerns.  The apex court, which had earlier granted time till May 30 this year for the purpose, extended the time for the NPCIL to set up the 'Away From Reactor Facility' (AFR) to store the spent nuclear fuel. A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud considered the submission of Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the corporation, that the deadline for setting up of the storage facility be extended till April 30, 2022. The bench, however, made it clear that no further extension of time shall be granted to the corporation for setting up of the AFR at the nuclear plant in Tamil Nadu. The apex court had earlier allowed the Centre to ...

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

Westinghouse emerging from bankruptcy, capable of delivering India nuclear reactors: Perry 17.4.2018 General News
US Energy Secretary Rick Perry said today that Westinghouse Electric Co is emerging out of bankruptcy and is now capable of delivering the planned six nuclear reactors to India on time. On his first visit to India, Perry said India must look at "broad portfolio" of energy sources to deliver reliable electricity to its growing population and not just at affordability. Civil nuclear cooperation has been a cornerstone of US-India relations. The 2016 deal, under which Westinghouse was to build six AP1000 reactors in Andhra Pradesh, was concluded after more than a decade of diplomatic efforts. But it was in limbo after Westinghouse in March last year filed for bankruptcy following an estimated USD 13 billion of cost overruns at two US projects. "The most important development is that Westinghouse is coming out of its bankruptcy" by shedding problematic parts of the company, Perry said. "Westinghouse is exceptionally good at building reactors. They are the best reactor manufacturer in the ..
