Russia’s AEM-Technology has shipped the first key elements of Bangladesh’s Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant.
AEM, part of Rosatom’s machine-building division JSC Atomenergomash, announced the shipment of a VVER-1200 reactor and a steam generator on Thursday.
Both were manufactured at the Atommash plant in Volgodonsk, the largest nuclear engineering production site in Russia.
The Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant in Pabna consists of two units with a capacity of 1200 MW each. The first unit is expected to be put into operation in 2023, and the second one in 2024.
“Manufacturing equipment with high quality and in time is one of our main priorities. In addition to that, despite a number of restrictions due to the coronavirus, we managed to ship the first reactor vessel for the Rooppur NPP according to the contractual obligations,” said Andrei Nikipelov, general director of JSC Atomenergomash.
