Kakrapar atomic power station recovery in three to eight months

The Kakrapar Atomic Power Station (KAPS) Unit-1 in Gujarat, which has been shutdown since March due to radioactive leak, may still take nearly three-to-eight months for full recovery. The Unit-1, an indigenously built Pressurised Heavy Water Reactor, was commissioned on May 6, 1993, with a capacity of 220 MW. On March 11, there was leak detected from its coolant system, following which it was shut down.
