“Russian components used in nuclear reactors of the upcoming park are not of inferior quality’’

Site Director, Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project R.S. Sundar has denied a charge by anti-nuclear activists that the Russian components used in the nuclear reactors of the upcoming nuclear park were of inferior quality.

“Since we have ensured the quality of every component at various stages from fabrication at Russia to installation at KKNPP site, we are 101 per cent sure that the quality of the components used here at the KKNPP is the best in the industry,” he told The Hindu on Wednesday.
