Delegation from Bangladesh visited Novovoronezh-II.. Headed by Tuhida Bulbul, Deputy Minister of Science and Technology, delegates were demonstrated Unit 2 under construction and Unit 1 in operation. Some of them were district council members from Pabna, a home district for the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant.
The delegation visited the control room and cooling towers of Novovoronezh-II Unit 1, took a look at the plant from the viewing platform, and learned about staff training at the plant’s Training Center for Personnel.
“Novovoronezh impressed us with innovative technology. We paid much attention to safety systems because Rooppur NPP will be constructed to the same design as this nuclear plant. The project itself and the operational practices, which we saw here, have demonstrated once again that we made the right decision to build a Russian-designed nuclear power plant in Bangladesh,” Tuhida Bulbul said.
The Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant will have two Generation 3+ VVER-1200 reactors with a total capacity of 2,400 MW. Novovoronezh-II is the reference plant for Rooppur.
