On September 29, one of the annual milestones was performed at Unit 1 of Rooppur NPP under construction in Bangladesh according to the Russian design the reactor support truss was installed in the design position. The purpose of the support truss is to fasten the reactor vessel and to resist the weight loads on it. Rooppur NPP with two VVER-1200 reactors and the total capacity of 2400 MW is being constructed under the Russian design, 160 km from Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, in accordance with General Contract dated 25 December 2015. The General Contractor for Rooppur NPP construction is Atomstroyexport (the engineering division of ROSATOM). The Russian design with VVER-1200 reactors was selected for the first NPP in Bangladesh, that was successfully implemented at Unit No 1 of Novovoronezh NPP-2. This is an evolutionary GenIII+ design which fully complies with all international safety requirements.

Mr Sergey Lastochkin, Vice-President - Director for Rooppur NPP construction project, - The works on construction of Units 1 and 2 are progressing in schedule said that ‘The works are related to the complicated installation since coaxiality tolerances in relation to the reactor pit are just 2 mm. Installation was completed ahead of the scheduled deadline thanks to the well coordinated activities of the employees of the engineering division and the personnel of the construction site.”
