About Heavy Water Board: Heavy Water Board is a constituent unit under the Department of Atomic Energy in the Government of India, founded in the year 1962 in Nangal. The organisation is primarily responsible for the production of Heavy Water(D2O) which is used as a 'moderator' and 'coolant' in nuclear power as well as research reactors. HWB is also engaged with the production of different types of nuclear grade solvents and extraction of rare materials. Dr Homi Jehangir Bhabha mooted the great idea of indigenous production of heavy water way back in the year 1945 for making the country self-reliant as well aspire to export it to the outside world.
In April 1954, the Atomic Energy Commission took a decision to investigate the feasibility of producing heavy water in India. The Research in Heavy Water is initiated by the Chemical Engineering Division of BARC in the 60' s and while these studies were in progress, a Heavy Water Plant at Nangal in Punjab was set up and commissioned in August 1962. Accordingly, an organisation known as the Heavy Water Projects was set up on May 1, 1969. The unit was headed by Shri S. Fareeduddin, an eminent chemical engineer and Padmashree of 1967 for his outstanding contribution in the front end of the nuclear fuel cycle.
Almost the entire group headed by Shri P.G. Deshpande of Heavy Water section BARC and Shri K.S. Bimbhat of HWB Nangal was transferred to Heavy Water Project in early 1969 formed the core groups for H2S-H20 and NH3-H2 process respectively.
