“The Norway tests [on an Indian thorium-based reactor] at the OECD’s nuclear trials facility in Halden are conducted in a Bond-style underground bunker. … A garage door in a cliff face leads into a tunnel deep into the hill where the reactor hall lies.” (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-24638816)
