BARC (Bhabha Atomic Research Centre) - leader of the Indian Thorium Energy Program
NPCIL (Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited) – constructor of the resulting reactors
ThEC15 will be the largest conference to date, with even more participants and speakers expected to contribute to the event. There will be a reception, a conference banquette, a visit to BARC facilities at Trombay and the Power Reactor at Tarapur and much more.
India has aimed for Thorium Energy since the 1950’s. A thorium-fueled reactor, known as the Advanced Heavy Water Reactor (AHWR) is the latest design of India’s three-stage, multi-decade nuclear program, formulated by late Dr. Homi Bhabha. The program is unique in the world considering the time and resources spent on systematically aiming at the deployment of Thorium Energy. The program is now ready for the market with a 300-MW prototype of the AHWR scheduled to be built in 2016, and expected to start generating electricity by 2023.
To secure a place at the conference, we advise you to register as soon as possible. Early registrants also benefit from a discounted conference fee.
