‘Big day’ in India’s nuclear history, says Shah, as Kakrapar power plant achieves criticality

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday said it is a “big day” in India’s nuclear history as the indigenously designed 700 MW Kakrapar atomic power plant-3 in Gujarat achieved criticality. The power plant achieving criticality means that it has reached the normal operating condition of a reactor. It indicates that the plant is now set to generate power.

“Big Day in India’s Nuclear history as indigenously designed 700 MWe Kakrapar Atomic Power Plant-3 in Gujarat achieved criticality. Nation salutes our scientists on this stellar achievement. New India is marching ahead to realise PM @NarendraModi’s vision of #AatmaNirbharBharat,” Shah tweeted.
