Nope,
i went to pillayarpatti in tiruppathur through Karaikkudi. The road to Manamadurai from pudukkottai passing through tiruppathur is not NH but SH 27, i suppose.
And the NH 210 is to ramanathapuram.

I too went to Pillayarpatti though the main reason was to see KanaduKaathan Chettinad palaces, but unfortunately it is not open to public anymore (Damn.. TN tourism website, it still lists this place ).

After seeing Pillayarpatti temple, we went Vettankudikatu Bird Santuary.

Most of those houses still belongs to the owners and their familes live there during vacation itseems.

Govt persuaded them to convert those houses as tourist attraction and opened it for public some 4 years ago but it lasted only for a year or so.

Now its allowed only for TV serial shooting and college excursions itseems. I donno if package tour operators have permit.

The biggest house in that place (with 1000 windows) belongs to Annamalai University M.A.M. Ramaswamy family. And the other big one opposite to that house belongs to Spic Muthiah Chettiar. I just took some pics from outside, disappointed that i couldnt go in.

Next time when you come to TN, please inform me. I will help to arrange a stay / visit.

But they say that the whole house has to be taken for rent for a day - minimum package.

In Pondy, they allow 2 or 3 families to stay in a single bungalow (each will have a separate bedroom with bath but will be sharing Hall, Dining court yard etc.).

Even in Kerala Home Stays are arranged in Sharing basis.

2 high temperature supercritical boiler materials developed

Chennai, Jan 20 : Scientists of the IGCAR, MIDHANI and NFC have come out with two very high temperature tolerant materials in what could be described as a first step towards building the India's indigenous Advanced Ultra Super-critical Boiler for thermal power plants

Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) Director S C Chetal said here today the materials could tolerate very high temperatures for manufacturing India's advanced ultra super-critical boiler that would ensure efficient firing of coal for ensuring energy security. He credited the joint efforts of IGCAR, Mishra Dhatu Nigam Ltd (MIDHANI) and Nuclear Fuel Complex (NFC) for coming out with the unique materials.

The IGCAR's expertise in handling materials resulted in the composition of the two alloys--stainless steel 304H and nickel based super alloy 617. While, MIDHANI manufactured the product, the NFC converted the alloys into tubes, IGCAR Metallurgy and Materials Group Director T Jayakumar said. The nickel-based super alloy 617 was made to order by few manufacturers in the world and is it was not available off the shelf.

The Super Ultra-critical boiler would be designed, developed and built jointly by the IGCAR, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) and the NTPC. The boiler design was expected to be ready in 30 months time. As per the drawn out plans, the IGCAR would design and develop the 800 MW advanced ultra super-critical boiler that could operate at a pressure of 350 bar (a measure of steam pressure) and at a temperature of 700 Deg Centigrade.

Project Consultant and Former IGCAR Director Baldev Raj said IGCAR had the expertise in designing equipment and develop materials that could operate at very high temperature. The boiler would be manufactured by BHEL and the NTPC would generate power through it. "Once the boiler is ready, we want to use it on an existing NTPC site to avoid any delay in getting statutory clearances," he added.

Dr Baldev Raj said about 60 per cent of the materials needed for manufacturing the boiler was already available in the country. ''Only the remaining 40 per cent of the high temperature tolerance metals are needed to be developed'', he said.

Post Mutiara Thermal Power Project set for start in 2012-13

Chennai: The 1200 MW Mutiara Thermal Power Plant being set up at Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu at a cost of Rs 4,000 crore would be commissioned in 2012-13.

The plant, aimed at addressing the power shortage of the State, was being set up by Coastal Energen Private Limited, the power generating company of the Coal and Oil Group. The plant is located at Melamarudur Village, Ottapidaram Taluk in Tuticorin District. It is also the first and only mega project out of the 30 planned over the next 15 years.

The project achieved financial closure during the peak of the global financial crisis in July 2009 with SBI and 16 other banks for Rs 3450 crore. It is currently the country’s largest Merchant Power Plant. Talking to reporters here today, Coal and Oil Group CEO Ahmed A R Buhari said "the construction activities are going on in full swing. Eighty per cent of the civil infrastructure requirement for the plant is complete with over 5400 skilled manpower working at site.''

The key milestone activity of Boiler Drum lifting for Unit-1 was achieved on July four last year and Unit-2 on October 12. About 85 per cent of Boiler, Turbine and Generator (BTG) equipment has reached the site from Harbin Electric International Limited, China.

KKNPP: Central expert calls on CM, ahead of talks

V Shanta, noted cancer specialist and a member of the Central expert group tasked to allay the safety fears over Koodankulam Nuclear Power Plant, met Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa here today. Though officials termed it a "courtesy call", the meeting assumes significance in the backdrop of the fourth round of talks between the central expert group and the state panel, including protestors on January 31 in Tirunelveli. Shanta, chairperson of the ciy based Cancer Institute, is a strong advocate of the nuclear option and has been appearing on air in TV channels in a one minute programme aired by Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited, vouching for the safety of KNPP.

Rejecting everything in name of ecology not correct: Ramesh

New Delhi, Jan 20 (PTI) Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh today slammed social and religious organisations for taking public positions on developmental issues saying it was against national interest. Citing the example of Church's role in mobilising people against Koodankulam nuclear power plant in Tamil Nadu and uranium mining in Meghalaya, Ramesh said Hindu, Christian or Muslim-faith based organisations "must not be seen as anti-progress, anti-development." "...Pardon my saying so, there is a feeling that sometimes organisations, social organisations end up taking positions on issues that go against developmental imperatives," he said during his inaugural address at the Golden Jubilee Celebrations of Caritas India, a Catholic organisation. "Archbishop, even in your state of Kerala, faith-based organisations sometimes end up taking positions on public issues which are seen to be anti-growth and anti-development," he told Archbishop Catholicos Baselios Cleemis, who hails from Kerala. Ramesh said it was not possible to meet the energy demand of the country by rejecting everything in the name of ecology. "...rejecting everything in the name of ecology. How it is possible for India to grow? If dams are already ruled out, if coal mining is going to be ruled out and if nuclear energy is also going to be ruled out, how are we going to grow", he asked. "1.3 billion people... population increasing by 12 million a year. We are going to add 500 million people in the next 30 years. A growing country requires energy. How are we going to fulfil these things," he said. He added, "I seek your forgiveness, if I have crossed the 'Lakshman Rekha'. Please take what I have said in the right spirit. I speak to you as a friend, a colleague, an advocate somebody who believes that you have the power to do good...But in the process of doing good, one should not create ripples, which create doubts about people's motives."

Source of anti-kudankulam fund unearthed?

http://tamil.oneindia.in/news/2012/0...d-aid0091.html

யு.எஸ். ஜெர்மனியிலிருந்து கேரளா வழியாக கூடங்குளம் போராட்டக் குழுவுக்கு நிதி வருவது கண்டுபிடிப்பு!

நெல்லை: கூடங்குளம் அணு மின் நிலைய எதிர்ப்புப் போராட்டக் குழுவுக்கு வெளிநாட்டிலிருந்து பெருமளவில் நிதி வந்திருப்பது தற்போது கண்டுபிடிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளாக தகவல்கள் வெளியாகியுள்ளன. அமெரிக்கா, ஜெர்மனியிலிருந்து இந்த நிதி அனுப்பப்பட்டுள்ளது. இந்த நிதியை கேரளாவில் உள்ள மீனவர் சங்கம் மூலம் கூடங்குளம் போராட்டக் குழுவுக்கு விநியோகித்துள்ளனர். இதன் மூலம் கூடங்குளம் அணு மின் நிலையத்திற்கு எதிரான போராட்டத்தில் கேரளாவின் பங்கும் முக்கியமாக அமைந்திருப்பது தெரிய வந்து அனைவரையும் அதிர வைத்துள்ளது.

மேலும் இந்த விவகாரத்தில் அமெரிக்காவின் பங்கும் இருப்பதும் தெரிய வந்துள்ளது. அமெரிக்காவிலிருந்து ஜெர்மனியில் உள்ள ரெய்னர் ஹேர்மான் என்பவருக்குப் பணம் போகிறது. அவர் அங்கிருந்து கேரளாவில் உள்ள ஒரு மீனவர் அமைப்புக்குப் பணத்தை அனுப்பி வைக்கிறார். இந்தப் பணத்தை உதயக்குமார் தலைமையிலான போராட்டக் குழு உள்ளிட்ட பல்வேறு தொண்டு நிறுவனங்களுக்கு விநியோகிக்கிறார்கள் என்பது கண்டுபிடிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. இதுதொடர்பான மேலும் சில முக்கியத் தகவல்களை மத்திய உள்துறை அமைச்சகம் விசாரித்து வருகிறது. அது உறுதியாகத் தெரிந்தவுடன் இந்த நிதிக் கட்டமைப்பு குறித்த முழு விவரங்களையும் மத்திய அரசு வெளியிடும் என்று எதிர்பார்க்கப்படுகிறது.

மேலும் இந்த நிதியைப் பெறும் பல தொண்டு நிறுவனங்கள் அதை வட்டிக்கு விட்டு வரும் அதிர்ச்சித் தகவலும் வெளியாகி பெரும் பரபரப்பை ஏற்படுத்தியுள்ளது.

கூடங்குளம் அணு மின் நிலையம் தொடர்பான ஒப்பந்தம் ஏற்பட்டபோதும் சரி, பின்னர் கட்டுமானப் பணிகள் நடந்தபோதும் சரி பெரிய அளவில் எந்தப் போராட்டமும் வெடிக்கவில்லை. ஆனால் அணு மின் நிலையம் தயாராகி திறப்புக்கு நாள் குறிக்கப்படும் நாள் நெருங்கிய சமயம் பார்த்து கடந்த ஆண்டு பெரும் போராட்டம் வெடித்தது.

உதயக்குமார் என்பவர் தலைமையில் கிராமத்தினர், விவசாயிகள், மீனவர்களைத் திரட்டி நடந்த இந்தப் போராட்டம் பெரும் பரபரப்பை ஏற்படுத்தியது. இநத்ப் போராட்டத்திற்கு மீடியாக்களும் முக்கியத்துவம் கொடுக்க ஆரம்பித்ததால் அகில இந்திய அளவில் இது பெரும் பரபரப்பை ஏற்படுத்தியது.

இதையடுத்து மத்திய அரசுத் தரப்பிலும், மாநில அரசுத் தரப்பிலும் பேச்சுவார்த்தைகள், சமாதான முயற்சிகள் நடத்தப்பட்டன. ஆனால் உதயக்குமார் தலைமையிலான போராட்டக் குழு எந்த உடன்பாட்டுக்கும் வர மறுத்து விட்டது. இதையடுத்து மக்கள் மனதில் நிலவும் அச்சத்தைப் போக்கும் வகையில் விஞ்ஞானியான முன்னாள் குடியரசுத் தலைவர் அப்துல் கலாமே நேரடியாக கூடங்குளம் அணு மின் நிலையத்தைப் பார்த்து ஆய்வு செய்தார். பின்னர் அவர் உலகின் அதி நவீன பாதுகாப்புகளுடன் கூடியதாக இந்த அணு மின் நிலையம் அமைந்துள்ளது. இது கூடங்குளம் மக்களுக்குக் கிடைத்த வரப்பிரசாதம் என்று அறிவித்தார். அப்படியும் போராட்டக் குழுவினர் அமைதி அடையவில்லை. மாறாக கலாமையே கடுமையாக சாடினர்.

இப்படி எந்த உடன்பாட்டுக்கும் வராமல் தொடர்ந்து போராட்டங்களில் உதயக்குமார் தலைமையிலான குழுவினர் ஈடுபட்டு வந்ததால் மத்திய உள்துறை அமைச்சகம், இவர்களுக்கு போராடுவதற்கு எங்கிருந்து நித வருகிறது என்று கேள்வி எழுப்பியது. மேலும் இதுதொடர்பாக சமீபத்தில் உள்துறை அமைச்சக் அதிகாரிகள் அதிரடி ரெய்டில் இறங்கினர்.

கடந்த வாரம் வருமானவரி மற்றும் உள்துறை மத்திய அதிகாரிகள் தூத்துக்குடி மற்றும் மதுரையில் உள்ள தனியார் தொண்டு நிறுவனங்களில் சென்று ஆய்வு நடத்தினர். இந்த ஆய்வில் முக்கிய ஆவணங்களை அதிகாரிகள் கைப்பற்றினர். இதில் என்ன கிடைத்தது என்பது அதிகாரப்பூர்வாக தெரிவிக்கப்படவில்லை. ஆனால் தற்போது இதுகுறித்து பரபரப்புத் தகவல்கள் வெளியாகியுள்ளன.

அதாவது அமெரிக்காவிலிருந்து ஜெர்மனியைச் சேர்ந்த, பல்வேறு நாடுகளில் உள்ள கிறிஸ்தவ தொண்டு நிறுவனங்களுக்குப் பணம் வழங்குபவரான ரெய்னர் ஹெர்மான் என்பவருக்குப் பணம் போகிறதாம். இவர்தான் இந்தியாவுக்கும் பணம் அனுப்பி வைக்கிறார்.

இவரிடமிருந்து கேரளாவைச் சேர்ந்த ஒரு மீனவர் அமைப்பு பணம் பெற்று அந்தப் பணத்தை கூடங்குளம் போராட்டக் குழுவினருக்கு அனுப்பி வைக்கும் விவரம் மத்திய அரசுக்குக் கிடைத்துள்ளதாம். இதற்கான ஆதாரம் கைப்பற்றப்பட்டுள்ளதாம்.

இந்தப் பணம் தொண்டு நிறுவனங்களுக்கு அனுப்பப்படும் இயல்பான பணமா அல்லது கூடங்குளம் போராட்டத்திற்கு ஊக்களிப்பதற்காக அனுப்பப்படும் பணமா என்பதை தற்போது மத்திய அரசு தீவிரமாக விசாரித்து வருகிறதாம்.

முன்பு சொந்தக் காசைக் கொண்டுதான் கூடங்குளம் மக்கள் போராடி வருகிறார்கள் என்று உதயக்குமார் கூறியிருந்தார். ஆனால் தற்போது போராட்டக் குழுவினர் கேரளாவில் உள்ள மீனவர் அமைப்புகளிடமிருந்து பணம் பெற்றது தெரிய வந்துள்ளது. இந்தப் பணம் வெளிநாட்டுப் பணம் என்பதும் நிரூபணமாகியுள்ளதால் புதிய திருப்பம் ஏற்பட்டுள்ளது.

மேலும் உதயக்குமாருக்கு கேரளத் தொடர்புகள் நிறைய இருப்பதும் தெரிய வந்துள்ளது. இவர் கேரளாவில் பட்டம் பெற்றவர். அங்குள்ள பல தொண்டு நிறுவனங்களுடன் தொடர்பு வைத்துள்ளார். மேலும் கேரலாவைச் சேர்ந்த பலர் அடிக்கடி கூடங்குளம் வந்து போயுள்ளதும் தெரிய வந்துள்ளது.

கூடங்குளம் போராட்டத்திற்கு கேரள அரசே கூட ஆதரவாகத்தான் இருந்து வருகிறது. மேலும், கூடங்குளத்தை மேற்கோள் காட்டி முல்லைப் பெரியாறு அணையை இடிக்க வேண்டும் என்றும் கேரள அரசு அடிக்கடி கூறி வருவதும் இங்கு நினைவுகூறத்தக்கது.

எனவே கூடங்குளம் போராட்டத்தின் பின்னணியில் மறைமுகமாக கேரள அரசும் கூட இருக்கலாமோ என்ற சந்தேகமும் எழுந்துள்ளது. மொத்தத்தில் கூடங்குளம் அணு மின் நிலைய எதிர்ப்புப் போராட்டத்தில் மிகப் பெரிய அளவிலான பின்னணி இருக்கும் என்று எதிர்பார்க்கப்படுகிறது. மத்திய உள்துறை இதுகுறித்த விரிவான தகவல்களை பகிரங்கமாக வெளியிடும்போதுதான் உண்மை என்ன என்பது தெரிய வரும்.

English summary

Union Home ministry officials have unearthed the source of fund to Anti Kudankulam agitation. The money has flown from US through a German, Reinar Herman and he has distributed the money to fishermen associations in Kerala. They have dispatched the money to the agitators in Kudankulam.

This movement can be crushed in two days if the local Govt. chooses to support KNPP. It is prolonging for months only because JJ's desire to have a good fight with CG . She has ordered Tly Collector to prevent entry of workers for any work other than routine m/c.

There is even a case in the High Court..a PIL, why no action is taken by JJ Govt after filing FIRs on those organising protests?

Surprise, most Media people are keeping quiet on this matter of local Govt. indifference!!!

India's first fast breeder reactor to go critical early 2013

India's first 500-MW prototype fast breeder reactor (PFBR), being set up at Kalpakkam near here, is likely to go critical early next year and commercial generation of electricity is expected in March 2015.


'Construction activities will come to close this year-end. Loading of the part fuel is expected to happen during the first quarter of next year and the reactor would go critical,' said S.C. Chetal, director at the Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) that designed the PFBR.

Chetal is also a director at Bharatiya Nabhikiya Vidyut Nigam Ltd (BHAVINI), a public sector company under the Directorate of Atomic Energy (DAE), that has been given the responsibility to build fast reactor power plants in the country.

When the PFBR is commissioned, power can be produced at a lesser cost than electricity generated from conventional sources.

A breeder reactor is one that breeds more material for a nuclear fission reaction than it consumes. The reaction produces energy that is used in the form of electricity. The Indian fast reactors will be fuelled by a blend of plutonium and uranium oxide.

While the reactor will break up (fission) plutonium for power production, it will also breed more plutonium than it consumes. The original plutonium comes from natural uranium.

The surplus plutonium from each fast reactor can be used to set up more such reactors and grow the nuclear capacity in tune with India's energy needs.

Fast reactors form a key in the India's three-stage nuclear power programme, which comprises pressurised heavy water reactors (PHWRs) at the first stage, fast breeder reactors (FBRs) at second and thorium-based systems at the third stage. In 1985, India became the sixth country in the world to have such a technology.

The government has said in parliament that the PFBR is expected to begin commercial production in March 2015. Nuclear scientists though are of the view that commercial generation can happen even before that date.

According to Prabhat Kumar, project director, BHAVINI, the PFBR construction work will be over by September this year and testing of various systems would end by December 2012 or January 2013.

'There is no inordinate time lag between PFBR attaining criticality and it starting commercial production given the fact that it is a newly-designed reactor. With small core/fuel lot of tests on reactor physics would be done. Then by gradually increasing the generation engineering tests would be carried out,' a nuclear scientist told IANS, preferring anonymity.

'A year of testing will be sufficient after reactor attained criticality,' he remarked.

Asked about the delay in commercial production, Chetal said: 'The PFBR is first of its kind in the country and we want to be sure about the functioning of each and every system.'

According to him, with the loading of part fuel, the reactor systems will be checked by increasing the power generation in a gradual manner.

He does not agree that the delay in commercial production of PFBR would have an impact on the next two fast reactors that is planned at Kalpakkam.

'The design modifications made in the proposed two reactors will not make them as first of its kind. They will be commercial reactors. Since PFBR is new we want to be sure with its systems,' Chetal added.

The government has allotted Rs.250 crore for pre-project activities for two more 500 MW units. It has sanctioned construction of two more 500 MW fast reactors whose location is yet to be finalised.

Wind energy Gamesa bags 24.7 MW wind farm from GAIL

Gamesa Wind Turbines, the Indian subsidiary of Gamesa, bagged a wind power order from GAIL India, for supplying 24.7 MW of wind turbines to the wind farm in Palani, Tamil Nadu.


The wind farm is expected to be commissioned by March 2012. Gamesa has received an order for 29 units of G58-850 KW (24.7 MW) wind turbines for the wind energy project. This is the first PSU order for Gamesa which is aggressively working towards expanding its operations in the Indian wind energy market.

Tamil Nadu gives hope to Nuclear Power Corp on Kudankulam

A team from the Indian nuclear establishment that met Tamil Nadu officials Monday went back with a positive feeling that the state government was looking at an early resolution of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project (KNPP) impasse.

“Our impression after today’s meeting with the chief secretary is that the state government is of the view that it is time to move ahead,” a member of the delegation, which met state’s Chief Secretary Debendranath Sarangi, told IANS preferring anonymity.

Villagers of Kudankulam, Idinthakarai and others close to the project in Tirunelveli district fear for their lives and safety in case of a nuclear accident.

Their agitation has put a stop to the project work, delaying the commissioning of the first unit slated last month.

Officials from the Indian nuclear establishment — A.P. Joshi, additional secretary, department of atomic energy, S.A. Bhardwaj, director (technical), Nuclear Power Corp of India Ltd. (NPCIL), and couple of others — had a meeting with Sarangi here.

Also present at the meeting was the Tirunelveli District Collector M. Jayaraman.

“The Tirunelveli collector detailed the issues faced by the local people in the Kudankulam area and their needs. He spoke about the drinking water needs of the people there, the need for proper medical facilities and schools for the children there,” Bhardwaj told IANS.

He said the fishing community there would also like to have storage facilities for their catch.

According to Bhardwaj the chief secretary queried whether NPCIL could provide these to the local populace there and we answered in positive.

“These are part of NPCIL’s corporate social responsibility activities and we answered in affirmative. However, we said that the matter would be discussed at our head office and communication to this effect would be sent soon,” Bharadwaj said.

India’s nuclear power plant operator NPCIL is building two 1,000 MW atomic power reactors at Kudankulam in Tamil Nadu’s Tirunelveli district, around 650 km from here.

The project, originally budgeted to cost Rs.13,171 crore, got initially delayed due to non-sequential deliveries of equipment from the Russian federation. The revised project cost is estimated to be around Rs.15,824 crore.

In order to resolve the issue related to protests against the project the central and state governments have formed two panels to allay the fears of the people.

As per plans, the multi-disciplinary central panel would meet the state panel and explain safety features and other aspects of the KNPP. The state panel will, in turn, allay the fears of the people.

The fourth round of the meeting was slated for Jan 31 at Tirunelveli.
