Mumbai: The Nuclear Fuel Complex in Hyderabad is all set to receive the first consignment of imported natural uranium from French power major Areva.
The first consignment of 60 tonnes is expected anytime and will be treated at Nuclear fuel complex (NFC), department of atomic energy (DAE) sources said on Wednesday.
All preparations are under way for fabrication of the uranium which will be in uranium oxide powder form, slightly better than yellow cake, they said.
Once the consignment comes to NFC, the seal will be opened in front of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors there.
