The supply of the main equipment for the third unit of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant in Tamil Nadu (India) was completed.
Russia’s Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation, the technical consultants and main equipment suppliers for Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant in Tamil Nadu, announced that ‘innovative unit-2 of the Novovoronezh Nuclear Power Plant-2’ for the first-time supplied electricity to the national grid.
After a series of successful and comprehensive tests, including on its twin KLT-40 reactor system, the one of its kind floating nuclear power unit (FPU) ‘Akademik Lomonosov’ is ready for commercial operations in Russia.
Tata Projects has received a prestigious order from Nuclear Power Corporation of India (NPCIL).
The main feature of the Indian project (Kudankulam) is a unique combination of active and passive safety systems that provide maximum resilience against external and internal impacts, including tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and even an aircraft crash. - Andrey Shevlyakov, CEO, Rosatom South Asia
Despite the strong rationale for reducing GHG emissions, the installation of nuclear power projects is slower than other projects. A closer look. - Ashok Upadhyay
Period: Apr-2018 Vis-A-Vis Apr-2017 and Apr-Apr-2018 Vis-A-Vis Apr-Apr-2017.
It has received an order worth ₹442 Crore from NPCIL to supply forgings for steam generators.
The challenge for the nuclear community is to assure that nuclear power remains a viable option in meeting the energy requirements of the next century. It could be a major provider of electricity for base load as well as for urban transport in megacities. It can play a role in non-electric applications in district heating, process industries, maritime transport.
This article discusses the various economic aspects and status of nuclear power generation and transmission in context with Indian Power Sector. Details of various nuclear power plants along with Nuclear Research centers are included. Data from various sources has been collected and compiled in order to provide readers with correct information regarding the status of nuclear power generation in India... - Dr Anuradha Tomar, Shikhar Agrawal, Ayush Mittal
Nuclear energy can make a valuable contribution to worldwide socio-economic development. In this article, the need of nuclear energy to meet the growing energy needs, the present scenario in India and in the world, the advantages and disadvantages of nuclear energy for environmental safety and the international measures taken for nuclear safety are discussed. If the growing world economy continues to rely on traditional thermal energy sources, carbon emissions would significantly rise and environmental consequences like greenhouse effect, global warming, and climate change would progressively become a serious cause for concern... - Chandrika L Kulkarni
It is quite satisfactory to note that in 2015, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India has seen major achievements in the field of civil nuclear cooperation…
In the last around two years, Indian power sector has grown at a very fast pace. Some of the plans, although made by the previous government, they could not accelerate their execution process. The present government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Minister of State (IC) for Power, Coal and New & Renewable Energy Piyush Goyal; has been successfully driving the sector towards an all round success. They have for the first time outpaced the growth rate of several areas under this sector… - P K Chatterjee
A study conducted at Jadugoda showed that 4.49% of the new born children had congenital deformities and 9.25% of the mothers reported deaths of their children due to congenital deformities... - Anuj Mahajan
The challenge is that we need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants – and yet provide affordable power to allow for improved standards of living to the global population... - Shah Nawaz Ahmad
India needs reliable and high quality power supply at all places for its all round growth. As the major portion of our power comes from thermal power plants, where coal is the mostly used fuel, the union government has already taken steps to ensure a smooth supply of coal to all those plants. The government is also working on expanding our transmission capability and modernising the distribution system… -P K Chatterjee
Motorized fluid handling machinery such as air compressors and pumps consume nearly 40 to 60% electric power used by the industry. A large number of such systems installed in our process and power plants, either operate under degraded efficiency conditions due to service induced deterioration of the equipment – or operate far from the optimal operating point on the characteristic curve due to over design or mismatch with the demand or process requirements… - Dr G S Grewal, Bhavesh Vasiyani
For decades climate scientists have warned to limit the human influence on ecosystem and climate that led to global warming and climate change. Now they say we have very little time to act. The Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC), a global institution that studies climate change, has recently released another alarming report that bespeaks the increasing harm we humans are doing to the environment in the form of greenhouse gases emissions. This disrupts the climate more and raises global warming. There should be zero emission of greenhouse gases by 2100, the report suggests, if there has to be no further rise in the temperature. That means, all nations have to phase out the usage of fossil fuel by end of this century. - J Devaprakash
