Kalpakkam reactor runs on fast track

Kalpakkam: Bhavini, the government of India enterprise, under the administrative control of the department of atomic energy, hopes to have the 500 MWe Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR), being built at Kalpakkam, ready for commissioning even before the deadline of September 2014.

Speaking to Deccan Chronicle on Tuesday, Dr Prabhat Kumar, chairman and managing director, Bhavini, said 93 per cent of the Rs 5,677 crore project had been completed and the PFBR could be commissioned by September next year or even sooner. “We have loaded all 1,747 major assemblies in the reactor core and are marching towards the September 2014 deadline. We are certain that we will not cross it. In fact we could even finish the work earlier”, he said.

If all goes well, the first plutonium-based reactor, PFBR, will start to produce 470 MWe power by March 2015, according to  him.
