Heralding a new age in the business of nuclear technology
Energy is the driver of development and nuclear energy is an essential option to satisfy India’s (and the world’s) future energy needs.
At present, India's nuclear power capacity is over 5,780 MW. The country aims to produce 10,080 MW by 2017 using pressurised heavy water reactors (PHWR), plutonium fast breeder, thorium reactors and imported reactors, all of which pose no threat of radiation. The next objectives are to produce 27,480 MW by 2024 and 63,000 MW by 2052 using nuclear energy.
