Second unit in MAPs resume operations
Chennai: The second unit of the Madras Atomic
Power Station at Kalpakkam, 70 km from Chennai, which was briefly
shut down for maintenance, has resumed operations, a MAPS
official said on Monday.
"The second unit of MAPs resumed operation yesterday
afternoon after completion of maintenance work," K Ramamurthy,
Station Manager, MAPS, told PTI.
The second unit with a capacity of 150 MW was closed for
six days to carry out maintenance activities.
The first and second units of MAPS run by Nuclear Power
Corporation of India Limited went critical in 1983 and 1985.
The nuclear complex in Kalpakkam along Bay of Bengal
houses Madras Atomic Power Station, Indira Gandhi Centre for
Atomic Research and Bharatiya Nabhikiya Vidyut Nigam Limited.
Ramamurthy had said on December 30 that operations at MAPS
had continued unhindered when cyclone Thane hit the Tamil Nadu
coast and that the two units operated safely at 150 MW
