Plan to make 6 N-reactors operational by 2039 5.11.2017 deccanherald.com
As Indias first prototype fast breeder reactor (PFBR) slowly moves closer towards commissioning, plans are afoot to make six more similar nuclear power reactors operational by 2039. Construction of two of these six fast reactors is scheduled to begin in 2021 in Kalpakkam in Tamil Nadu. They are expected to start commercial operation by 2029 and 2031, respectively, adding 1,200 MW of electricity to the southern grid. The other four would be built at a new site from 2025 onward and would start generating electricity between 2031 and 2039, said sources in the Department of Atomic Energy. However, the scheduling of future fast reactors depends, to a large extent, on the performance of the 500 MW prototype reactor, which is eight years behind schedule. The PFBR missed yet another target date of completion in October 2017 and now is expected to be commissioned by mid-2018. "The 500 MW prototype fast breeder reactor is under advanced stage of commissioning. Sodium coolant has been poured into the secondary ...

BARC implements SWAN to provide storm warning 27.8.2017 deccanherald.com
In a bid to provide environmental safety at Department of Atomic Energy sites, the Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (BARC) scientists here have implemented Simulating Waves Near Shore (SWAN) system model here at Kalpakkam in Tamil Nadu for the prediction of extreme waves during stormy events for providing advance warning. As the costal environment in the southeast coast of the country is frequently prone to cyclones, storm--surges and extreme waves, the SWAN model will predict the waves height in the ocean during bad weather conditions. BARC sources here on Sunday said that the SWAN was tested by performing simulations for the number of fair weather and stormy events in different seasons. Accordingly, the time series of simulated significant wave heights are compared with the Wave Rider Buoy observation situated near union territory Puducherry and Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu. Results of predictions of fair-weather and stormy events in all four seasons indicated the SWAN observed that the height of ...
