KOODANKULAM –THE PEEPLI OF TAMIL NADU
Speaking to reporters at Koodankulam Mr. Balaji, thesit director has said the nuclear reactors there had been designed to be safe in all natural eventualities such as tsunami and earthquake. The buildings that house the reactor and its auxiliary equipment, reactor safety systems, safety diesel generators, the control room and other power generating equipment — all are designed to operate safely under seismic activity.
The project buildings are at a height of 25 feet and there is very less chance of flooding; the reactor has excellent cooling systems. It has axillary cooling system too . The diesel generators which operate the coolant are at a safer distance from tsunami. The reactor stood unaffected and touched in the tsunami that hit these coasts in 2004.
Koodankulam is just a part of the ongoing protest across the country.
First it was Jaitapur. Now it is Koodankulam. Haripur and mamta was another issue.
