India NPP to be quake, tsunami-proof

The Kudankulam nuclear power plant in the south of India, which is built with the assistance of Russia, is earthquake and tsunami-resistant, a top official at the Indian Nuclear Energy Corporation said.

  The official, Shrean Kumar Djein, said that the plant’s reactors are designed in such a way that they will continue to operate as normal even if all workers had to vacate the plant.

   Experts of the Indian Nuclear Energy Corporation will be inspecting all nuclear power stations across the country in the aftermath of the disaster at the Fukushima plant in Japan, the corporation’s chief executive said.
