India with every step is heading towards being a powerful nation. One such step is the construction of Kalpakkam nuclear reactor. It is India’s first Fast Reactor Fuel Cycle Facility which is ready to be brought into action.
Core Sub-assemblies plants and waste management facility all incorporated in one single complex.
The most significant power plant of India is built on the shores of Bay of Bengal at Kalpakkam near Chennai. It took almost 15 years for Indian scientist to achieve this accomplishment of the building of the fast breeder reactor. The Indian scientists have finally succeeded in creating an ultra-modern ethnically designed and locally mastered fast breeder reactor.
It is of great accent to India because this nuclear reactor is capable of extracting 70% more energy than that of traditional reactors. It is even safer than the reactors of olden days reducing long-lived radioactive waste. The reactor built at Kalpakkam is a fast breeder reactor which generates more atomic fuel than it consumes for work. Other than India, the world’s one and only commercially operating fast breeder reactor is situated in Russia.
The next is ready to get a grand start in India. This type of reactor can supply an unlimited amount of electricity. Many other countries have given tries to come up with these types of the reactor but have failed all the times. China one of the most powerful nations is behind India to achieve accomplishment with these types of reactors.
The functioning of these reactors is very rapid. The neutrons that contain the atomic chain reaction have much higher velocity than the neutron of traditional atomic plants.
The nuclear power reactor is called as ‘akshaya Patra’, the mythical goblet with the never-ending food supply.
India is always hungry for energy due to the increasing population very second. The increased economic growth requires a mega quantity of electricity. Although India has a poor luck in terms of Uranium but holds a 2nd place of having Thorium. The use of Thorium n the fast breeder reactor can be very effective. This addition to the power collection has made India supreme in terms of power in the world. After Russia, India has been successful in making of these reactors. The increase of 70% of energy to the country is a great move and achievement to the Indians.
All eyes are now on India where another global nuclear milestone is likely to add a slab to the energy of India.
