NFC chief allays fears over nuclear fuel supply, says new facility at Kota by 2022

A new facility of the city-based Nuclear Fuel Complex, with a capacity to produce 500 tonnes of nuclear fuel bundles, will come up in Kota, Rajasthan, in July 2022.

“We are planning to produce nearly 500 tonnes of fuel but we have made a provision wherein we can expand it in three years to produce 1000 tonnes,” NFC chairman and chief executive Dinesh Srivastava told TOI in the city. In all 1,500 engineers, technical people and workers will be employed at NFC-Kota and approvals are expected soon from the union ministry of finance for this.

Nuclear Fuel Complex in the city is the only place in the country where nuclear fuel bundles are produced for supplying fuel to nuclear power reactors in the country.
