India’s nuclear regulator AERB is carrying out a thorough review of the first unit of the much-delayed Koodankulam atomic power plant as directed by the Supreme Court last month.

“We are reviewing the safety aspects of Unit 1 at Koodankulam as directed by the Supreme Court,” an AERB official said.

On May 6, the Supreme Court had cleared commissioning of the first 1,000 MW nuclear power plant project, saying the safety and requirements have been taken care of. At the same time, it spelt out 15 directions on ensuring safety as well as handling of spent fuel, “ensuring the quality of various components and systems because their reliability is of vital importance.”  ENS
