Negotiations with French company Areva on the nuclear plant at Jaitapur could restart soon, a senior official of the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) said on Monday.

While exhibits from the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) have been a regular at IIT Bombay’s Techfest, for the first time at this year’s festival, NPCIL addressed the students to

French major Areva also claims safety of EPRs, but critics not convinced.

The evolutionary pressurised reactors (EPRs) that Areva is interested in supplying to the Nuclear Power Corporation (NPC) as part of the proposed Jaitapur nuclear power in Maharashtra will offer 15 per cent savings on uranium per mega-watt produced as compared to other reactors, according to the French nuclear major.

Although India has a long written record, the shaking intensity of few damaging earthquakes that occurred before AD 1800, can be quantified. Since reliable estimates of future shaking near planned nuclear power plants depend on the extrapolation of historical earthquake data spanning many centuries, estimates of seismic risk to the planned Jaitapur nuclear power plant assessed from a short dataset of only the past few centuries, may not, therefore, represent the true risk to the plant.
