Following are the comparison between nuclear power plant and thermal power station.
|Nuclear power plant
||Thermal power station
|Where there is enough supply of water, away from thickly populated areas to avoid radioactive pollution.
||Power plant located at a place where ample supply of water and coal is available, transportations facilities are adequate.
|Required least compare to TPP & HPP of same capacity.
||Needs sufficient space for all equipment storage of fuel & storage of ash.but need less space as compare to HPP but need more space then NPP, GPP, DPP.
|Less then that required for TPP but more other power plants.
||Lower then those of HPP & NPP.
|Minimum due to small quantities of fuel required as compare to TPP.
||Maximum because of coal transportation.
