Kakrapar-4 Reaches Criticality: A Bright Step Towards Clean Energy Independence

Today, Unit-4 of the Kakrapar Atomic Power Project (KAPP-4) in Gujarat successfully achieved first criticality, providing significant momentum to India’s nuclear energy goals. At 1:17 am, the reactor reaches a crucial milestone that initiates a controlled and self-sustaining nuclear fission chain reaction, opening the door for the production of clean energy in the near future.

The criticality accomplishment of KAPP-4 aligns with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s steadfast dedication to India’s goal of net-zero emissions. Because of its small carbon footprint, nuclear power is essential for preventing climate change and paving the way for a sustainable future. The significance of nuclear energy in India’s clean energy strategy is reaffirmed by this major development at Kakrapar-4.

The achievement of KAPP-4 serves as a noteworthy illustration of India’s increasing autonomy within the nuclear industry. The Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) and Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) have demonstrated their skills with the construction of the 700 MW Pressurised Heavy Water Reactor (PHWR). The entire project, from design and building to commissioning and operation, demonstrates India’s domestic capacity for cutting-edge nuclear technology.

The crucial role that Indian businesses and industries played in setting up and carrying out KAPP-4 contracts is equally remarkable. This mindset of cooperation, motivated by the goal of Atmanirbhar Bharat, is essential to the growth of India’s nuclear energy industry.

Now that criticality has been reached, KAPP-4 is moving forward to synchronise with the grid and start producing clean electricity. This would not only improve India’s energy security but also make a major contribution to the country’s green energy targets.

The criticality of KAPP-4 is a historic accomplishment for India’s transition to a sustainable and autonomous future, as well as for the nuclear power industry. As the reactor prepares to generate electricity, it illuminates the route to a cleaner and brighter tomorrow.
