He explained, "These measures include double containment and protection building, passive cooling systems for the reactor unit, a molten core catcher
, passive system for fast injection of high pressure boron, extra tanks for long-term supply of borated water to the reactor in a passive way, and the system for inter-containment area passive filtration, a closed water withdrawal system for service water for an NPP (which is actually a breakwater).
Besides the control rods, the Kundankulum Plant has uniquely implemented the latest technology in this domain - The Core Catcher
. This is basically an underlying structure with Gadolium oxide which would "catch the neutrons" in the event of a highly unlikely meltdown.
