Rooppur Power Plant Construction Soon Start


Posted on 2017-11-23 Author:LIYUCSF


Recently, Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission (BAEC) has formally received the design and construction license, paving the way for the main construction work of Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (RNPP) Unit-1.


The main phase of the construction of the RNPP, the maiden nuclear power plant in Bangladesh, is set to begin on 30 November, making the much-hyped project a reality. The final phase work includes the civil construction for setting up the nuclear reactor. “We are planning to pour the first batch of concrete to begin the main construction work on November 30. This is a giant leap for the country as, through the beginning of the main phase of construction, we are entering the era of nuclear power generation” , said Dr. Shawkat Akbar, the RNPP Project Director.


However, this project will be the most expensive one in Bangladesh as the investment of whole Rooppur Power Plant is about US$12.65b, 90% of which is funded by a load from Russian government. As per the plan, the first plant of this project is expected to be completed by 2022. Once the project is completed, Bangladesh will become the third Asian country after India and Pakistan to harness energy from atomic fission.
