Comparison between nuclear power plant and thermal power station

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.
