  • Scientists welcome govt nod to 10 indigenous atomic reactors

India has approved the construction of ten indigenously designed pressurised heavy water reactors (PHWR).

Briefing the media on the Cabinet decisions, Power Minister Piyush Goyal said each of the reactors would have a capacity of 700 MWe. While the USA deal, involving Toshiba Westinghouse for six reactors in Andhra Pradesh, is floundering after Westinghouse filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the deal with French company Areva for reactors in Jaitapur remain mired in negotiations over costing.

Goyal said the move will boost domestic industry manufacturing orders by almost Rs. 70,000 crore and is expected to generate more than 33,400 jobs in direct and indirect employment.

The minister said the project will help transform the Indian nuclear industry by linking the goal of a strong nuclear power sector with the country's indigenous industrial capacities in high-end technologies.

"The design and development of this project is a testament to the rapid advances achieved by India's nuclear scientific community and industry".

"It underscores the mastery our nuclear scientists have attained over all aspects of indigenous PHWR technology".

With completion of reactors under construction and the addition of the ten new reactors, installed nuclear power capacity of the country is expected to reach 20,480MW. Both plants, comprising two units of 700 MWe each, are under review. The new reactors will add another 7,000 MW to it.

The Cabinet also approved a coal linkage policy, called the Scheme for Harnessing and Allocating Koyala Transparently in India (Shakti), that will award fuel supply agreements to coal plants already holding letters of assurance (LoAs). "India's record of building and operating PHWR reactors over the last almost 40 years is globally acclaimed", the release said.
