Work will start on November, 30, on constructing the first nuclear power plant in Bangladesh at Rooppur with Russian collaboration, according to an announcement from Russia’s Rosatom Atomic Energy Corporation.
Whether or not the world is experiencing the nuclear renaissance, the Asian region is indeed witnessing its ‘nuclear power moment’.
The Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant is Bangladesh’s first nuclear power project after a long portfolio of negotiations and the country has become the third South Asian nation to harness nuclear energy after India and Pakistan.
At a time when various countries are shying away from embracing Nuclear Power, Bangladesh will see the first concrete pouring into the reactor building foundation of its Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant on November, 30.
The second unit of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KKNPP) in Tamil Nadu today resumed electricity generation, Site Director S V Jinna said in a release.
As the pouring of the first concrete for the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (RNPP) is expected this month, news pours in that Bangladesh has shortlisted eight sites for its next nuclear power plant and survey will start soon.
The ceremony of first concrete pouring into the reactor building of the Bangladesh’s maiden Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (RNPP) will take place on November 30.
