Institute of Nuclear Power Engineering (INPE) of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in association with National Research Nuclear University MEPhI of Russia organised a workshop on Nuclear Technology from November 5 to 9 at INPE Auditorium.

Seventy student from different faculties of BUET took part in the intensive workshop covering topics like machinery and equipment of VVER-1000 and VVER 1200 based nuclear power plants, nuclear fuel cycle and thermohydraulic profiling of nuclear reactor cores.

Three Professors from MEPhI - Dr. Dmitrii Samokhin, Dr. V Fedoseev and Dr. Olga Momot were the mentors in the workshop. On the concluding day on November 9, certificates were awarded among the participants, said a press release.

Dr. Shaikh Anowarul Fattah, Director of INPE- BUET, Dr. M A Rashid Sarkar, Former Diector of INPE-BUET, A P Demin, Director of Russian Centre of Acience and Culture in Dhaka, Mikhail S.

“I found the participants to be very enthusiastic. I believe that they are capable enough to take the challenge of implementing Bangladesh’s nuclear power programme in future.” said Dr. Dmitrii Samokhin, Head, Department of Nuclear Physics and Engineering, MEPhI. “We look forward to organise similar courses for Bangladeshi students in the days to come.”

Bangladesh is implementing its first ever nuclear power plant at Rooppur of Pabna the technological and financial assistance from Russia, which is considered to be the global leader in construction of nuclear power plants.

The power project will have two units each of 1,200 MW capacity. Latest 3+ Generation VVER- 1200 reactors to be set up there which completely meet up the safety requirements set by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Moreover, under an inter-governmental agreement Russia is assisting Bangladesh in training its manpower for the Rooppur Nuclear Power Project.

Over hundred students from Bangladesh presently are studying nuclear science in Russian universities. Rosatom is also providing theoretical and practical courses for Rooppur project employees.
