Koodankulam: Russia gets okay for nuke fuel supply

New Delhi March 27 Russia could commence nuclear fuel supplies for the Koodankulam atomic power project over the next three months.

The Russian Government has told the Indian side that it has already co-ordinated the issue with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and is ready for the first supply for the facility in Tamil Nadu, which is being built with Russian participation.

"The Russian side has already co-ordinated the supply with IAEA and clearances have been obtained for the first supply for Koodankulam by the second quarter of 2007," a Government official said. Russia has committed to refuel Koodankulam throughout its service.

The project's first unit is likely to be commissioned in the second half of 2008, the second one in 2009.

The Russian Government has provided India with a long-term credit, which covers almost half of the total cost of $2.6 billion entailed in setting up the project.

Besides the two 1,000 MW units under construction at Koodankulam, Russia is contemplating the construction of four new units at the same site. In all, Russia could be building up to 10 nuclear units across various sites in India subject to the progress made by the country in its forthcoming negotiations with the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG).

There is also the possibility of India getting access to nuclear fuel supplies from the proposed Angarsk International Uranium Enrichment Centre being set up by Russia for supply of uranium to countries with nuclear energy programmes under IAEA safeguards. The International Uranium Enrichment Centre, which Russia is setting up in collaboration with countries such as Kazakhstan under IAEA supervision at the Angarsk Electrolysis Chemical Plant in Eastern Siberia, could start full-fledged operations as early as by the middle of this year.

The Centre is expected to produce only low-enriched uranium, which cannot be diverted for building nuclear weapons.

Reliance plans 2 new gas pipelines - govt

MUMBAI (Reuters) - Reliance Industries Ltd., plans to build two gas pipelines in southern India, the government said on Friday, that could help the energy explorer supply gas from its deep-sea fields to retail consumers.

The petrochemicals to oil refiner aims to produce 80 million cubic metres of gas a day (mmscmd) by mid-2008 from its two fields in the prolific Krishna Godavari basin.

Oil Ministry said in an advertisement on Friday that Reliance Gas Transportation Infrastructure Ltd., a group firm, had submitted a proposal to lay a 670 km pipeline from Chennai to Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu.
It also wants to build another 660 km pipeline from Chennai to Mangalore in the neighbouring state of Karnataka, via Bangalore, the ministry said.

The advertisements in local newspapers did not disclose the cost of the two projects, and a Reliance spokesman could not give details immediately.

Reliance is already constructing a 1,400 km pipeline to transport natural gas from the deep-sea fields off India's east coast to the western regions of the country.

Earlier this month, P.M.S. Prasad, head of Reliance's oil and gas business, said the company planned to build city gas distribution networks in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Gujarat and West Bengal.

The Oil Ministry said the two new projects were to be developed on a common carrier basis, making it mandatory for Reliance to offer 33 percent of each pipeline's total capacity to other firms.

"The interested party would have to enter into a take or pay contract or any other mutually agreeable contract with the owner for usage of the proposed pipeline," the ministry said.

India produces 95 mmscmd of gas and the government expects this to rise to more than 190 mmscmd by 2009 after a series of gas finds off the east coast, including by Reliance, come on stream.

The Chennai-Mangalore pipe line also runs approx 300kms in TN. They can have a tapping point at Vellore for supply to Salem city.

They may extend a branch line from Tiruchi to coimbatore via Karur, Erode, Tirupur. No chance that they will miss out on major urban centres

Boilers made in Tuticorin to be shipped to Sharjah

Tuticorin: Assembled boilers manufactured in Tuticorin are getting ready to be exported through the port here.

On Sunday, two boilers each measuring a length of 16 metres, a height of 8 metres, and weighing 105 tonnes, manufactured by a private unit here were moved from its yard premises to the port.

They will be shipped to the Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA) in the United Arab Emirates, on April 4.

"The boilers are will used in a desalination plant set up by the SEWA," said B. Pattabhiraman, managing director, G B Engineering Limited, which produced the boilers.

The boilers were transported from the yard to the port on a truck with 10 hydraulic axles and 80 tyres.

The police regulated the traffic along the route and the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board switched off overhead transmission systems, wherever it was needed, to ensure smooth transportation of boilers to the port.

I think the rest of TN has to be happy with just proposals and promises while the actual projects are only implemented in Chennai.

Why are they establishing the wind mill spare parts SEZ near Chennai when most of the wind mill farms are located near Tirunelveli ??. With the presence of Tuticorin port it is also possible to cater to domestic and international markets. Its sad when they dont keep up their promises. With this news the sad story of the neglection of rest of TN continues.

Tuticorin Port Trust creates record

Tuticorin: The Tuticorin Port Trust (TPT) has created a record of sorts in container traffic during this financial year both in the highest volume of containers handled in a month, as well as in a single ship.

The TPT handled 3,77,102 Twentifoot Equivalent Units (TEUs) of containers during 2006-`07 than the 3,21,060 TEUs of containers in the previous fiscal, registering a growth of 17.46 per cent.

"This is the highest volume of containers handled in a financial year in the port's history," said N. K. Raghupathy, chairman, Tuticorin Port Trust.

Record month


Further, the TPT created a record by handling 40,018 TEUs in March 2007.

"The performance surpassed the previous best for the containers handled in a month (36,215 TEUs) set in August 2006," the Chairman said.

On March 31, the port handled 2,717 TEUs of containers in a single ship, M V Tiger Sky. "This is the highest volume of containers handled in a single ship," the Chairman added.

Mr. Raghupathy said that container handling in the port improved steadily since 121 TEUs were handled in the first year of container handling operation at the port in 1999.

He attributed the growth to the establishment of a dedicated berth and introduction of gantry cranes. "Presently, we handle about 27 containers per crane in an hour, with the help of three gantry cranes and eight yard gantry cranes," he said.

The performance matches the international standards he added.

The vessels' stay at berths too had come down in the last few years. "We now handle a container vessel in 15 hours on an average," the Chairman said.

Infrastructure


Mr. Raghupathy said that to augment container-handling capacity, the Berth 8 would be converted into the second container terminal at a cost of Rs. 150 crore shortly.

"It would increase the container handling capacity of the port by 4 lakh TEUs," he told.

Tuticorin Port Trust to focus on infrastructure development


The Tuticorin Port Trust would focus on infrastructure development, traffic improvement and human resources development to improve overall performance during the current fiscal, its Chairman, N.K. Raghupathy, has said.

Speaking at an annual press conference here on Friday, he said that infrastructure development worth Rs. 109.66 crore would be taken up this fiscal.

Of the total cost, Rs. 50 crore would be earmarked towards dredging at Inner Harbour to increase draught to 12.8 metres, Rs. 5 crore each for procurement of a tug and improvement of roads, Rs. 20 crore towards construction of Berth 9, Rs. 5 crore for replacement of few cranes and Rs. 4.6 core for other continuing schemes. The remaining amount would be utilised for contribution to the equity of Sethusamudram Corporation Limited and National Highways Authority of India.

Mr. Raghupathy said that Outer Harbour would be developed at an estimated cost of Rs. 4,000 crore.

"We have forwarded a proposal to the Centre seeking `in principle' approval for short listing of bidders for the Outer Harbour Development project," he added. Construction of North Cargo berth planned on captive basis for Neyveli Lignite Corporation (NLC) is expected to be completed before December 31, 2008. "The entire cost of project to the tune of Rs. 40 crore would be borne by NLC," he said. "

More trains for Tuticorin likely

Tuticorin: Union Minister of State for Railways R. Velu has said that the Railway Ministry would consider introducing more trains to Tuticorin once the double laning work between Madurai and Dindigul was completed towards the end of current fiscal.

Speaking to reporters here on Friday, he said that at present, the track on the sector (62 km) was utilised about 130 percent of its capacity between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m. the following day and hence new overnight train services could not be operated to Tuticorin.

Ruling out the possibility of shifting Tuticorin railway station to Milavittan, he said that projects worth Rs 2.06 crore are already in the pipeline to augment the facilities in the station.

Besides, the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation would establish a budget hotel just outside the building.

"In all, we are planning 100 such budget hotels across the country in a phased manner,' he said.

Work on the road over bridge in progress at railway gate no. 3 would be completed before December 31.

Similar flyovers would be constructed at gates 1 and 2 on a cost-sharing basis with the State Government.

Gauge conversion between Tuticorin and Tirunelveli would be completed before September 30.

Similarly, conversion of tracks between Quilon and Punalur to broad gauge would be over this fiscal.

"We are planning to convert the entire meter gauge in the State to broad gauge over the next few years," he said. Earlier, Mr. Velu assessed the progress of construction of road over bridge at railway gate no. 3 and inspected the development works under way at the railway station.

The Divisional Railway Manager, Hemant Kumar, the Collector, R. Palaniyandi, the Divisional Railway Engineer, Robert Rajasekharan, and senior railway officials were present.

Night landing facility for Tuticorin

Quote:
Tuticorin: Night landing facility at the airport here is set to become a reality, as the Airports Authority of India plans to install Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI) and runway lights on an outlay of Rs 1.25 crore.

The installation of PAPI, at a cost of Rs. 25 lakh, is nearing completion and the gadget will become functional before April 15. AAI sources said that it would aid pilots for a safe and accurate final approach to the runway.

The system consists of four boxes of lights, kept on both sides of the runway.

Each box of lights will be equipped with an optical apparatus that splits the light output into red and white segments. Depending on the angle of approach, the lights in the gadget will appear either red or white to the pilot. K. Ramalingam, Regional Executive Director, AAI, said that runway lights would be installed at a cost of about Rs. One crore.

The establishment of night landing facility will enable commencement of late evening flights from here, to suit the convenience of a large section of passengers.
