The Rajasthan Atomic Power Station Unit 3 (RAPS-3) has set a new record of continuous 766 days of operations on Wednesday, breaking the earlier record of the RAPS-5 of 765 days of non-stop operations in 2014, an official said here.
So far, on 28 occasions, NPCIL's reactors around the country have demonstrated continuous operations of over a year, said the official.
NPCIL operates 22 reactors with a total capacity of 6780-MW power generation capacity, including the 100-MW RAPS-I, at Rawatbhata, near Kota in Rajasthan.
However, the RAPS-I, which started commercial operations in December 1973, is now under "an extended shutdown" since October 2004 for techno-economic assessment of its continuance.
