The walls of each nuclear power plant are made of steel, iron and strong concrete, but to provide air defense, two air defense systems have been installed around this power plant.

Due to the displeasure of China for the last few days Taiwan Is constantly in the headlines. In view of the displeasure of a powerful country like China, Taiwan is constantly engaged in improving its military situation. Taiwan’s last days Ministry of Defence said that 17 Chinese planes taiwan strait Crossed the middle line of the , which usually serves as an informal barrier between the two sides. Not only this, Beijing is continuing its military activities near the island. Taiwan is engaged in the preparation as well as the security of the nuclear power plant.
This is the country’s second nuclear power plant built in northern Taiwan, surrounded by high hills to avoid any possible attack, while on one side is the Taiwan Strait, which provides 130 kilometers of security to the mainland of China. Is.
To save this power plant in case of any untoward incident, it has been built about 70 km away from Taiwan’s capital Taipei, from here electricity is supplied through high tension wire. Significantly, Taiwan relies on nuclear plants for 10% of its energy needs, while it produces 25% of the capital’s total electricity. If this power plant is shut down in the event of any attack, about a quarter of the capital will be plunged into darkness.
nuclear power plant protection
Although the walls of each nuclear power plant are made of steel, iron and strong concrete, two air defense systems have been installed around this power plant to provide air defense. First of all, talk about Skybo, an air defense system made in Taiwan’s own country, it can protect from 50 to 70 kilometers from drones, combat helicopters and slow-moving aircraft.
To avoid supersonic ballistic and cruise missiles as well as China’s fifth generation fighter aircraft J20, the US has also given a battery of air defense systems named Patroit.
How does a nuclear plant work?
There are steel walls outside any nuclear reactor, inside it there are 3 parts. Out of which one command and control room, second heavy water coolant plant and third hot water to generate electricity by rotating turbine. These three parts are being shown through animation and dummy models.
Usually the walls of the turbine and nuclear fuel area are very thick, but the control room is considered the weakest link in the nuclear power plant in terms of security. In such a situation, if the control room is attacked by a Chinese drone, the automation will stop, after which the energy will increase so much that the power plant will collapse. With this, nuclear radiation will have spread within a radius of 150 kilometers within a few minutes, due to which in the first few hours Taipei, the capital of Taiwan, will be seen causing huge destruction.
