Event Description

Faculty of Engineering and Technology, Electrical Engineering had organized a one-day Industrial visit on the date 19/10/2022 to Narora atomic power station Bulandshahar (U.P.).

Our B.Tech and Diploma Students (55 students) with faculty members and NAPS subordinate staff joined the industrial visit. The Narora Atomic Power Station is situated at the banks of the river Ganga in Bulandshahr district of Uttar Pradesh. It is 60 kms away from Aligarh which is the closest substantial population centre. The NAPS is a twin unit module of 220MW each of pressurized heavy water reactors. The reactors use natural uranium available in India as fuel & heavy water produced in the country as moderator & coolant. The station is connected to a high voltage network through five 220kV lines, one to Moradabad, one to Harduaganj, one to Simbholi, & two to Khurja. It is designed for base load operation as a commercial station. Narora Atomic Power Plant is the fourth Atomic Power Plant installed in India preceded by Tarapur in Maharashtra, Rawatbhata in Rajasthan, and Kalpakkam in Tamil Nadu. One peculiarity about NAPS is that it is the first indigenous Power Plant in the country.

The prime motive was to make student acquit with Industrial application along with regular classroom teaching.
