List out the advantages of nuclear power plants over conventional thermal power plants.

Advantage of Nuclear Power Plants:

1. Nuclear Power station reduces the demand for oil coal and gases.

2. Weight of nuclear fuel required for a given station capacity is negligible compared to that required for a conventional thermal power station. As a result the problems of transport and resulting costs are avoided. 

3. The area and volume need for a nuclear power station is less in comparison to a conventional power plant of equal capacity. 

4. In addition to producing large amount of power, a nuclear power plant produces valuable fissile material, which is extracted when the fuel is renewed.
