The First Bangladeshi Nuclear Power Station to Be Built by Russia

The Russian state corporation Rosatom has signed an agreement on building the first nuclear power station in Bangladesh. According to the document, two energy units, 1 gigawatt each, will be built in the area of Ruppur in Bangladesh. It is 200 km from the capital of the country Dhaka.

According to Sergey Kirienko, the head of Rosatom, the station will meet all so-called post-Fukushima requirements. The energy units will have double containment shell of the reactor, a system of passive heat removal and a device to localize an active zone.

The cost of building will vary from $ 1.5 billion up to 2 billion. The most part of the sum will be spent from the state means of Bangladesh, the rest will be given by Rosatom and foreign investors.  

Russia will deliver the fuel for the station during the whole period of its exploitation. The construction is to be completed in about 2017-2018.

The specialists from the south Asian country will receive training at Rosatom already next year.
