L&T’s presence at G20 event affirms its focus on nuclear energy
L&T Heavy Engineering marked its presence at the G20 international seminar on “The Role of Small Modular Reactors (SMR) in the Energy Transition” organised by NITI Aayog, the Department of Atomic Energy and NTPC on 16-17 May in Mumbai.
The event brought together professionals from the nuclear power industry, public and private sector companies, regulatory bodies, international agencies and policymakers to deliberate upon key issues. The forum reinforced discussions on the way forward for enabling policy / regulatory framework and other challenges faced by the nuclear power sector with an aim to accelerate the deployment of SMRs.
Mr Anil Parab (Whole-time Director and Sr EVP – L&T Heavy Engineering & L&T Valves) joined the panel discussion on Design Standardisation, Modularisation and Policy Intervention for accelerating Small Modular Nuclear Reactor technology towards contributing to the Government’s target of zero carbon emissions by 2070.
The session was moderated by Dr V K Saraswat (Member – NITI Aayog). The other dignitaries on the panel were Dr Alexandre Volgini (Director of Projects – Rosatom Energy Projects JSC, Russia), Mr Vakisasai Ramany (Sr VP Development – EDF, France), Mr Amit Sharma (MD & CEO – Tata Consulting Engineering Ltd), Mr Gurdeep Singh (CMD – NTPC) along with Dr Nalin Shinghal (CMD – BHEL).
“Global strong support and vision can become reality only if operators, regulators, technology players and suppliers own up to their responsibility jointly towards the common goal of viable nuclear power – otherwise it will remain just a shared dream,” Mr Parab said.
Other L&T Heavy Engineering seniors who were in attendance included Mr Falgun Chokshi (EVP – Process Plant & Nuclear Equipment) and Mr Praveen Bhatt (VP & Head – Nuclear, Mfg Tech & Digi, Machine Shop, Maintenance & Plant Engineering).
