    • India ready to share experience in Nuke tech


    STAFF WRITER 0:45 HRS ISTKalpakkam (TN), Oct 10 (PTI) India stands ready to share its experience in nuclear science and technology on a mutually acceptable basis, Minister of state for Science and Technology Prithviraj Chavan said today.

    Its indigenous 220 MW and 540 MW capacity pressurised heavy water reactors are available for export to countries within the ambit of international framework, he said.

    Nuclear fleet expansion should not be constrained by limits on materials supply and component manufacturing capacity, he said at the inaugural session of the 'Asian Nuclear Prospects' (ANUP-2010), organised by Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research in association with Indian Nuclear Society and International Atomic Energy Agency.

    "It is important that the industries plan their expansion in advance and in a timeframe to meet growth targets of nuclear power.

    It would be a nightmare for U.S. if INDIA shares its nuclear expertise with the above mentioned countries, because we use heavy water reactors with which one can take out the tritium as a side product and tritium is also used in nuclear missiles in the third stage(please correct me if i am wrong).
