CHENNAI: In a first of its kind in south India, Chennai city will have its own `2.5 crore Nuclear Power Gallery with a walk-through nuclear power station ready for public viewing by February 2015.

P Iyamperumal, Executive Director of the Tamil Nadu Science and Technology Centre, which will house the nuclear gallery, said “There is fear about nuclear power. The gallery will provide an opportunity to dispel many of these. It will have a real life model of a nuclear power station. The Centre has been conducting a number of outreach programmes for students to increase awareness of nuclear power. This helped us get selected to set up such a gallery.”

Through a combination of physical models and digital projections in the Nuclear Power Gallery, students will be guided through every stage of nuclear power generation and be able to witness the entire process of nuclear fission reaction by which nuclear energy is generated.

The gallery will feature models of nuclear reactors, fuel and safety equipment.
