Thanks Hiten for the update. Due to the long issue with the Sodium Cooling that our scientists have not been able to overcome for some years now i was fearing the unthinkable of the present reactor being a design failure and its possible scrapping(setting the program back by at least a decade).

I am keeping my fingers crossed and hoping the reactor reaches criticality at least in Dec 2021.

^ it may be a schematic for Proton Therapy device, used in medical applications. Safer than X rays.

The focused beams are too weak for the Proton beam synchrotron (PBS) accelerators used at CERN. They apparently need 1000s of tons of magnets.

It is not a proton therapy device: Look at the size, 13m tall, 6m wide.

It is an accelerator driven sub critical reactor (ADSR)

Dr. Sekhar Basu, former Secretary of the Department of Atomic Energy, an unassuming thinker of keen insights, a problem solver, a committed scientist- technologist and a big hearted cheerful man passed away.

He leaves a rich legacy and a wide imprint that will always be remembered . He worked on several mega science projects and many Indian and international scientists had privilege of knowing/working with him

You will be missed Dr. Basu.

Finally mainstreaming of a rationale viewpoint on Nuclear Power. Apologies but it's the BeeB finally putting this out.

Nuclear power: Are we too anxious about the risks of radiation?

Tongue in cheek I would like to say that BRF as usual ahead of the curve. Recall the lengthy discussions and posts by people when we were discussing 123 and Kudankulum. And Shiv jis posts on the effect of a TNW.

I never thought there will be video of this incident.

https://twitter.com/CrazyinRussia/status/1311931152169660416

The Soviets used a nuke to block a burning oil well and the whole incident was secret. Fundamentally a nuke test, which was not known to the west.

This is an example of how big countries can carry out nuke test and none will be wiser..

Interesting research by Dr. Meera Chadha on how to lessen impact of large explosions with possible applications on Nuclear attacks.

Mathematician Dr Meera Chadha Finds A Way To Reduce Effects Of A Nuclear Explosion; Here’s Her Inspiring Story

Using mathematical modelling, Dr Chadha has shown that the deadly effects of nuclear weapons can be mitigated to some extent with the introduction of dust particles. The otherwise-irritating substance (allergic folks can testify) is found to reduce the energy released from the blast and curtail the distance over which damage can occur.

“The aim of the study was clear from the beginning,” Dr Chadha tells Swarajya. “To mitigate or reduce the effects of an explosion, like the one in Beirut, but a nuclear explosion in particular.”

Dr Chadha used the bombing of Hiroshima as a reference. That bomb had a yield of 15 kilotonnes and was dropped over the city from a height of more than half a kilometre. Flash burns were felt nearly 1 km away and buildings were destroyed over a 1.6 km radius.

“I thought that if I could reduce that 1.6 km radius and take it down to about 1 km or 1.2 km, we would be moving in the right direction,” she said contemplatively.

Here's the Abstract of her paper and the full paper can be requested from here.

Abstract
In this paper, we have studied the impact created by the introduction of up to 5% dust particles in enhancing the decay of blast waves produced by a nuclear explosion. A mathematical model is designed and modified using appropriate assumptions, the most important being treating a nuclear explosion as a point source of energy. A system of partial differential equations describing the one-dimensional, adiabatic, unsteady flow of a relaxing gas with dust particles and radiation effects is considered. The symmetric nature of an explosion is captured using the Lie group invariance and self-similar solutions obtained for the gas undergoing strong shocks. The enhancements in decay caused by varying the quantity of dust are studied. The energy released and the damage radius are found to decrease with time with an increase in the dust parameters.

India's first Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor in final stages of commissioning

SV Krishna Chaitanya
30th October 2020

CHENNAI: Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) director Dr Arun Kumar Bhaduri on Friday said India's first Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR) was in the final stages of commissioning.

He was responding to a query by The New Indian Express on the sidelines of a rare press conference organised following the inauguration of an incubation centre. "The PFBR is in the final stages of commissioning. I can only say this much," he said.

On March 5, in response to a question in Parliament, the Union minister of state for atomic energy Jitendra Singh said the PFBR will be “commissioned and operationalised” in December 2021.

In an RTI reply to Chennai-based activist, Bharatiya Nabhikiya Vidyut Nigam Limited (BHAVINI), the organisation in charge of building and operating the PFBR, has attributed the delay in various stages of commissioning to multiple technical issues and challenges, primarily pertaining to the design and manufacture, as it is the first of its kind.

"The sequential commissioning comprises various stages. The application for the stage commensurate with the current status of the project has been submitted and permission granted by Atomic Energy Regulatory Board," reads BHAVINI's reply, a copy of which is available with The New Indian Express.

Meanwhile, the World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2020, which was released in September, has termed the PFBR as the most delayed project. It was supposed to be completed by 2010 but its startup date has been repeatedly pushed back.

In March 2020, the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Science and Technology, Environment, Forests and Climate Change outlined the “hope” that the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) will be in a position to commission the PFBR at Kalpakkam near Chennai by the end of 2021, a timeline that accords with Jitendra Singh's statement in the Parliament.

The committee acknowledges the lengthy delay on this project, but advocates for completion, suggesting the PFBR will “transform” India’s nuclear energy program. That “transformation” might take longer than India’s nuclear establishment promised.

In the latest annual report published by BHAVINI, the chairman admits that within the organisation “a re-think is being done” about the capacity of the next fast breeder reactors and “based on the ongoing difficulties and experience generated during the entire ongoing commissioning phase of PFBR, it is being deliberated whether for the purpose of standardisation it may be prudent to retain them as 500 MWe units” in contrast to earlier proposals to build a design capable of generating 600 MWe.

The ongoing difficulties during the commissioning phase pertain to numerous problems involving various components of the PFBR, including electro-magnetic pumps, fueling machinery, and secondary sodium pumps. In addition to considering lowering the power level of future FBRs, the annual report also admits that “construction of these reactors is expected to commence, only after the power operation of PFBR, so as to ensure availability of adequate performance feedback /data from PFBR and correspondingly bringing about suitable incorporation of required design changes in the proposed FBRs.”

In contrast, the previous annual report had asserted that “construction of these reactors is expected to commence in 2021 by which time adequate performance feedback on full power operation from PFBR is expected to be available, for factoring in the proposed 600 MWe designs.”

The projected cost of the PFBR has also risen from the initially anticipated Rs 34.9 billion (US $463 million) -- first to Rs 56.7 billion (US $752 million) and currently to Rs 68.4 billion (US $907 million).

Bill Gates backed consortium wants to develop Thorium based MSRs for ships.
I wonder why India does not invite them to setup shop in India. The article also mentions abundance of Thorium in India.

In the m-MSR atomic battery, the fuel is the coolant and the coolant is the fuel, so coolant cannot be lost. Thorium is a weakly radioactive metallic chemical element found most commonly in India and is a substance that Gates’ TerraPower has been studying closely of late.

As cyclone Nivar is crossing the coast so near to Kalpakkam,

Kalpakkam's MAPS activates protection machinery as Cyclone Nivar approaches
The Madras Atomic Power Station (MAPS) in Kalpakkam on Tuesday has activated its Cyclone Protection Machinery and all preparedness measures (for Nivar) are being undertaken, according to Station Director of MAPS M Srinivas.

Srinivas said that sandbags have been placed on the coast side and stormwater drains have been cleared and inspection of plant buildings and structures have been done.

The station authorities are on high alert and are closely monitoring the weather bulletins.

He said that unit 2 of MAPS is functioning at its full capacity of 220 MW.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) had said the cyclonic storm Nivar would intensify into a very severe cyclonic storm with sustained wind speeds of 120-130 kmph gusting to 145 kmph.


Heavy rains lashing Chennai since last night.

we are far ahead of almost all others in this specific field.

If any come, it's only to piggyback and surely industrial espionage will not be too far from their minds.

If gates' MSR works anything like his windows products, then god help us all.

Kudankulam reactors to get 'more reliable and cost-eective' nuclear fuel: Rosatom.

Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant units 1 and 2 will have a new type of nuclear fuel which is "more reliable and cost-eective" and their fuel cycle will be elongated from 12 to 18 months, TVEL Fuel Company said on Wednesday. TVEL Fuel Company of Russia's State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom and Nuclear Power Corporation ofIndia Limited (NPCIL) have signed an agreement to supply the nuclear fuel for the Kudankulam reactors.

Kudankulam 1 and 2 reactors, both of 1,000 MW each, have already been commissioned while units 3-6 are at different stages of construction.

"TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom and Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) have signed an agreement to supply fuel contract, aimed at the implementation of a comprehensive engineering project, including introduction of the new TVS-2M nuclear fuel and elongation of the fuel cycle from 12 to 18 months for both operating VVER-1000," TVEL said

Compared to the UTVS fuel model, which is currently supplied to the Kudankulam plant, TVS-2M fuel assemblies have a number of advantages making them more reliable and cost-effective.

First, it is the rigidity of a bundle because of which the welded frame, the fuel assemblies in the reactor core retain their geometry, the spacer grids protect fuel rod cladding from fretting wear (preventing from de-pressurisation), and the additional spacer grid makes fuel assemblies more vibration-resistant, TVEL said.

Secondly, the new fuel has increased uranium capacity -- one TVS-2M assembly contains 7.6 per cent more fuel material as compared to UTVS.
"Everything that we offer to our Indian partners is focused on obtaining economic benefits from nuclear power units operation. The eiciency is achieved due to the increased uranium content in a fuel bundle, reducing the amount of spent nuclear fuel and increasing duration of the fuel campaign from three to four-and-a-half years," Natalia Nikipelova, President of TVEL, said.

Earlier, TVEL Fuel Company implemented similar projects of replacement UTVS with TVS-2M fuel and an extension of the fuel cycle from 12 to 18 months at Tianwan nuclear power plant in China.

India’s BHEL wins huge order for PHWR equipment from NPCIL.

Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited announced that it has won a “prestigious order” from the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) for the supply of 32 reactor header assemblies for India’s indigenously-developed 700MWe pressurised heavy water reactors (PHWRs) to be set up at four different locations.

This was the first order placed under NPCIL’s Fleet Mode Procurement programme and will significantly boost domestic manufacturing.

India’s government had approved fleet mode implementation of ten 700MWe PHWRs in 2017 at an estimated cost of $16.3bn. BHEL said it has been associated with all the three stages of the Indian Nuclear Power Programme as the primary supplier to NPCIL for reactor headers, steam turbines, steam generators, motors and other equipment. To date, all the reactor header assemblies for 700MWe PHWR projects in India have been supplied by BHEL. Currently, some 75% of PHWR based nuclear plants in India are equipped with BHEL-supplied turbine and generator sets.

The ten planned reactors are units 5&6 at the Kaiga NPP in Karnataka state, units 1&2 at the Chutka NPP in Madhya Pradesh, units 1-4 at Mahi Banswara NPP in Rajasthan and units 1&2 at Gorakhpur NPP in Haryana state. Four 700MWe PHWRs are already under construction: Kakrapar 3&4 in Gujurat, and Rajasthan 7&8 in Rajasthan.

India’s PHWRs are a domestic design based on the Candu type reactor which uses heavy water and natural uranium but which do not require a reactor pressure vessel (RPV) - India does not have the manufacturing capability to produce the large forgings needs to make RPVs.

India has focused on self sufficiency in its nuclear development since its first nuclear weapons test in 1974, after which it was excluded from international nuclear trade until its agreement with the USA in 2008. Two small Canadian (Candu) PHWRs at began operation at Rajasthan nuclear plant in 1972 and 1980. Subsequently India constructed 14 200MWe PHWRs at five sites (Kaiga, Kakrapur, Madras, Narora and Rajasthan) as well as two 490MWe PHWRs at Tarapur.

India also has two small boiling water reactors built in the 1960s by GE operating at Tarapur, as well as two Russian supplied VVER-1000 units operating at Kudankulam, which were connected to the grid in 2013 and 2016, with two others under construction and more planned.

Unit 3 of Kakrapar nuclear plant synchronised to grid.

The unit 3 of Kakrapar Nuclear Power Plant (KAPP) has been synchronised with the grid, a senior official of the Department of Atomic Energy said on Monday. Former Atomic Energy Commission Chairman, Anil Kakoddar, said 15 more such units will follow in fleet mode.

The 700 MW Pressurised Heavy Water Reactor (PHWR) was synchronised with grid at at 11.37 am on Sunday, the official added.

"Extremely happy to know that India's first 700 MWe PHWR, KAPP-3, has been synchronised with grid at 11:37 hrs today (10.01.2021). True example of indigenous technology developed and built in India with with fifteen more such units to follow in fleet mode. 'Atmanirbhar Bharat'," Kakodkar, the former secretary of the Department of Atomic Energy said.

The first 700 MW Pressurised Heavy Water Reactor at Kakrapar, Gujarat, KAPP-3 achieved criticality (controlled self-sustaining nuclear fission chain reaction for the first time) on July 22.(Six months from achieving criticality to commercial linking to the grid.)

Kakrapar also two PHWRs of 220 MW each. The fourth nuclear power reactor of 700 MW is also coming up.
