AEC chief makes strong case for nuclear energy

Indian nuclear plants register 379 reactor years of operation, 80% capacity factor

The Indian nuclear power sector has registered over 379 reactor years of safe operation as on date. The average annual availability of the Indian nuclear power plants (NPPs) has remained at 90%.

Six of the 19 reactors, currently under operation, have logged continuous operation of more than 300 days during the year, informed Dr R K Sinha, chairman of the  Commission ().

In his address at the 57th General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency () on Wednesday at Vienna, Sinha said the performance of the NPPs and of several fuel cycle facilities, reached their highest levels last year.

This includes NPPs registering 80% capacity factor, pressurized  reactor () fuel production of 812 million ton (an increase of 8% over the previous year) and the highest ever production of heavy water with the lowest specific energy consumption.

According to Sinha, the Indian PHWRs offer a highly competitive capital cost per megawatt and a low unit energy cost. He told the gathering that the first unit of the  nuclear plant, which achieved its first criticality on July 13, is expected to begin commercial operational shortly. The second unit is also in an advanced stage of commissioning.

With gold, silver and Uranium stocks being out of favor one must decide if this is a problem or an opportunity. We have steadfastly refused to buy gold and silver mining stocks for the last two years and as evidenced by the HUI we feel that our decision to hold back has been vindicated. The damage done to the mining sector may not be over yet but this demise is starting to offer up some exciting opportunities in my view.

Great care will be needed in the selection process in order to generate a reasonable profit and that’s where our new venture begins. ‘Stock Trader’ has begun trading on behalf of ourselves and our much valued subscribers, all exciting stuff which we are really looking forward to, if you wish to join us then please subscribe below;
