ABOUT THE COMPANY India has an ambitious target of power production by Nuclear Power Reactors to meet future energy needs of the country. 1956 on 22nd October 2003 under the administrative control of Department of Atomic Energy is presently involved in construction and commissioning of 500 MWe Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR) at Kalpakkam. . Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) and Bharatiya Nabhikiya Vidyut Nigam Limited (BHAVINI) are responsible organization to construct thermal reactors and fast breeder reactors respectively in the country. Bharatiya Nabhikiya Vidyut Nigam Limited formed as a company and registered under Companies Act. NPCIL is currently operating seventeen nuclear reactors and constructing five reactors. Two Indian companies.

.  The PFBR is the forerunner for the future Fast Breeder Reactors to be constructed in various parts of our country including two more reactors at Kalpakkam to meet the future energy needs of India.  BHAVINI is constructing Mega Project PFBR and the reactor is now in advanced stage of construction.CONT…  Kalpakkam is an important nuclear establishment of Department of Atomic Energy of India and this coastal site is situated 70Km south of Chennai.

.  General idea about Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor.  Design references of the intake structure of the prototype.  General precautionary measures to be considered during the construction and maintenance of PFBR.What I have done  Studied some general features of the FAST BREEDER REACTOR.

Site location .

 Sand entering into pump must be avoided.SITE DESCRIPTION The entire PFBR plant is divided into nuclear and power islands The PFBR plant located in the shore takes condenser cooling water from sea. .

Figure of the intake and outlet .

General features of intake structure The PFBR intake structure consists of Outlet shaft on the shore  Intake shaft off on the shore  Submarine tunnel  Approach jetty .

1m 556m 567m Length Depth 55m 50m .6m 7.Dimension of Intake structure The dimension of the intake structure is developed by Central Water and Power Research Station(CWPRS). Diamete r Outlet shaft: Inlet shaft Submarin e tunnel Approach jetty 6m 4.2m 3.

.

Understood the safety measurement that have to be followed in the Nuclear reactor.CONCLUSION The PFBR intake structure is a design and construction marvel. Understood the various factors that governing the PFBR. . Have got the idea about the various components in the Intake structure.

Thanking you… .
