Cabinet Decides Setting Up 10 Nuclear Power Plants to Generate 33,400 Jobs


Cabinet Decides Setting Up 10 Nuclear Power Plants: The most exciting new which every Indian is waiting for has come and it is now possible for the unemployed to get the opportunity of working in a power plant and get rid of the unemployment. India will be building 10 pressurised heavy water reactors (PHWRs) to increase its nuclear power generation capacity.

The Union Cabinet has cleared the building of 10 new nuclear power plants. These nuclear power plants will add 7000MW to India’s nuclear power generation capacity. These will be the indigenous 700 MW pressurised heavy water reactors (PHWRs). These nuclear generators will be added to the ‘Make in India’ initiative. This will reduce the dependency on fossil fuel for the generation of electricity.

The government said, the new reactors would be in addition to the ones that are expected to come onstream by 2021-22, which will add 6700 MW in addition to the current capacity of 6780 MW from 22 reactors. The reactors under construction are Kudankulam, Kakrapar and Rajasthan Atomic Power Plant (RAPP). The government said the new reactors would come up in “fleet mode as a fully homegrown initiative”.

There was an initiative which was took up by the Nuclear power plant in Kudamkulam of Tamilnadu. Through this initiative, Nuclear power is also steadily and increasingly making its way into use in India. The nuclear power is a little dangerous but high power can be obtained from the the nuclear power reactors and make India good at having the electricity.

The Department of Space said in an official statement about the development: “India has current installed nuclear power capacity of 6,780 MW from 22 operational plants. Another 6,700 MW of nuclear power is expected to come on stream by 2021-22 through projects presently under construction.” It added: “In a first-of-its-kind project for India’s nuclear-power sector, the 10 new units will come up in fleet mode as a fully homegrown initiative. It would be one of the flagship ‘Make in India’ projects in this sector.”

The department also said that, “The order would cost Rs 70,000 crore, and that it would create 33,400 jobs. With manufacturing orders to domestic industry, it will be a major step towards strengthening India’s credentials as a major nuclear manufacturing powerhouse. The 10 reactors will be part of India’s latest design of 700-MW PHWR fleet with state-of-art technology meeting the highest standards of safety.”
