Kudankulam reactor load-ready
All safety systems operated without a hitch during a test emergency, the source said.
The start-up of Kundankulam’s Rosatom-built first power unit was scheduled for last December, but had to be postponed over protests by local environmentalists.
Work resumed after the protesters were persuaded that the plant was safe and reliable. Rosatom is building seismic-resistant nuclear power stations in many other countries.
