"Nuclear power is generally meant to supply for the base-load, so the utility company needs to make sure that the grid is able to handle the added capacity, which should have planned long beforehand. From the environmental standpoint, connecting a nuclear power plant instead of a fossil fueled one can bring substantial reductions in carbon emissions and airborne pollutants."
“Our specific needs include training in reactor analysis, in-core fuel management, and safety analysis, reactor operation and maintenance. Local expertise, skill and competency should be developed for efficient management and future operation. We are lacking expertise in nuclear physics, reactor physics, nuclear engineering graduates, both at graduate and undergraduate level needs to be addressed. More universities need to come forward with quality programmes to address this.”
