Hyderabad-based NFC plays key role in Nuclear-tech self reliance

As India is on the verge of realising it’s next big plan of producing more green energy, the city-based Nuclear Fuel Complex (NFC) has made a significant contribution to the country’s first, biggest, and completely indigenously produced 700MWe pressurised heavy water reactor (PWHR) that has been set up in Gujarat.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had on July 22 announced that the Kakrapar Atomic Power Plant-3 had achieved criticality, describing it as a ‘shining example’ of ‘Make in India’. Parliament was informed by Union minister Jitendra Singh on September 18 that KAPP-3 would be commissioned and operationalised in November this year.

“The message that we are delivering to the world is that India has achieved the level of maturing in PWHR technology,” NFC chairman and chief executive Dinesh Srivastava told TOI on Tuesday.
