Leak In Kakrapar Nuclear Plant Serious, Independent Inquiry Needed: CNDP Statement

On

The plant authorities claim that there has been no radiation leak. While, we very much hope that this is the case, we would like to urge the NPCIL to ensure the protection of workers at the plant who are involved in cleaning up the spilled heavy water. By its very nature, some of the heavy water that is in the primary coolant circuit would have been absorbed neutrons to be converted into tritiated water. Tritium is a radioactive isotope and thus the tritiated water will be automatically radioactive.
