India’s nuclear industry is poised for a groundbreaking transformation with the advent of the country’s first indigenous Micro Reactor, SOOKSHMA (SUK-M), developed by IYNS TechSolutions LLP. This innovative 10 MWe reactor represents a leap forward in nuclear technology, harnessing molten salt technology and utilizing Thorium as fuel to drive sustainable energy production.

The SOOKSHMA Micro Reactor is a testament to India’s commitment to advancing nuclear power while ensuring energy security and environmental sustainability. With a projected prototype expected by 2031, this revolutionary reactor promises to redefine the landscape of India’s energy sector.

Key features of the SOOKSHMA Micro Reactor include its compact design, with a power output of 10 MWe, making it suitable for a wide range of power and non-power applications. The reactor’s development is being carried out in phases, with all stakeholders, including the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB), collaborating closely to ensure its success.

One of the most remarkable aspects of the SOOKSHMA Micro Reactor is its extended refueling cycle of more than 15 years, significantly enhancing operational efficiency and reducing downtime. This breakthrough in reactor technology not only optimizes resource utilization but also enhances safety and reliability.

The conceptual components of the SOOKSHMA Micro Reactor include innovative structural materials, advanced coolant systems, and precision-engineered piping infrastructure. These components are designed to withstand extreme conditions while maximizing performance and longevity.

With a reactor size of 2.4 meters and a height of 10.5 meters, the SOOKSHMA Micro Reactor offers a compact footprint, enabling faster deployment and integration into India’s nuclear infrastructure. Its versatile design allows for seamless integration into various energy generation and industrial applications, driving forward India’s Nuclear Program 2.0.

Furthermore, the SOOKSHMA Micro Reactor represents a significant step towards achieving India’s energy independence and meeting its growing power demands. By harnessing Thorium as fuel, India can leverage its abundant domestic resources while reducing dependence on imported fuels.
