Three atomic power stations to have new heads
There will be change of guard at three atomic power stations, run by Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL), in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Gujarat, said an official.
NPCIL has appointed T.J. Kotteswaran as the station director for Madras Atomic Power Station (MAPS) effective from Wednesday. There are two 220 MW reactors at MAPS in Kalpakkam, around 70 km from here.
Earlier heading the third and fourth atomic stations at Kaiga in Karnataka, Kotteswaran’s transfer to MAPS comes due to incumbent K. Ramamurthy’s retirement Wednesday.
