  • N Power is the way for Pakistan.

    In the event of any sea route or port blockage (of The Persian Gulf or Pakistan,per se),there is no fuel supply risk,as the Yellow Cake or the Fuel Rods can be imported from PRC (by air).dindooohindoo

    The reactors can be imported from PRC,with the Fuel rods,and the DU can be used by the military ordinance factories,to make armour and ammunition.It gives an opportunity,to PRC to shuffle LEU stocks between PRC and Pakistan and IAEA safeguards.

    The norm in The N-Reactor trade is that the capital asset is given on almost 100% loan,for a long period- as much as half the life of the reactors.

    So the cash cost of the N-Power is almost Nil.There is NIL FX OUTFLOW and the LEU stocks can be enriched in Pakistan HWRs to create Nuke Fuel for N Subs - and the N Subs can also be purchased from PRC

    For a USD starved and power starved nation (for industry),the cash cost of power is the relevant cost,and not the Total or Variable or Marginal Cost.

    Once the reactor is critical,the power is peak load power,and surplus power can be used in pumped storage power plants.

    After linking the industrial capacity to the power supply,the Pakistani govtt has to export the power in the form of metal products or any other application.

    The incremental GDP earned from the N power will be at least 15-25 times the CASH COST OF THE N POWER,PER ANNUM.

    This vast gap in the costing can be used to create a sinking fund for Disaster Insurance and Decommissioning Costs.

    20% of Power capacity can easily be from N Power.
