Bahadurgarh (Haryana): The country`s
first Global Centre for Nuclear Energy, an initiative
announced by Prime Minister in April, will come up in
Bahadurgarh town on the border of Haryana and Delhi.
The Centre will be set up on priority basis at 125
acres while 80 acres will be kept for residential plots. The
project will take minimum three years to complete, said
project director Dr J P Shrivastva, who led a six-member-team
that visited Jassaurkheri and Kheri Jassuar villages today.
Four schools will be established here to carry out
research in the field of nuclear security, radiological
conservation and use of radiostopes techniques, he said,
adding that the Centre would be set up on the pattern of
Bhabha Atomic Reseach Centre, Mumbai.
The state-of-the-art facility will conduct research
and development of design systems that are intrinsically safe,
secure, proliferation resistant and sustainable.
Shrivastva also expressed satisfaction over the
connectivity of the site for the proposed centre.
The prime minister had announced setting up of the
Centre while addressing the plenary session of the Nuclear
Security Summit convened by US President Barack Obama in
Washington in April.
