Name of the Project
Rooppur nuclear power plant (NPP).

Location
Ishwardi Upazilla, 160 km from Dhaka, in Bangladesh.

Project Owner/s
Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission (BAEC).

Project Description
The Rooppur NPP will comprise two VVER-1200 reactors with a total capacity of 2 400 MW.

Potential Job Creation
Not stated.

Capital Expenditure
Not stated.

Planned Start/End Date
Unit 1 is scheduled for completion in 2024 and Unit 2 in 2025.

Latest Developments
Installation of the transport lock has been completed in the Unit 1 reactor building at the NPP construction site.

The transport lock is the biggest piece of equipment at the NPP site, at 12.7 m long, 10 m wide and weighing 235 kg. Through the transport lock, nuclear fuel is loaded and unloaded into the plant, and equipment of Class 1 and 2 is delivered during the various stages of NPP construction.

After the NPP startup, fuel simulators will be delivered through the lock, and it will ensure full maintenance of the reactor.

Further work on the assembly and adjustment of the transport lock will be conducted after the jacketing of the power Unit 1 dome.

On March 9, Rosatom reported that the outside containment concreting was completed 45 days ahead of schedule. The total process took 110 days instead of 155.

Key Contracts, Suppliers and Consultants
Various divisions of Rosatom are in charge of manufacturing reactor vessels, steam generators, pumps, heat-exchangers and other equipment.
