Russia mobilizes multinational experts for Rooppur nuclear plant`s safety

German and French experts joined hands with Russians as Russia starts works to install Bangladesh`s maiden nuclear power plant (NPP) in northwestern Rooppur laying high priority on safety standards, a senior Russian official said on Tuesday.

"We we are engaging German and French specialists alongside ours to build the plant with the state of art technologies, maintaining highest safety standards," President of JSC NIAEP-holding Company JSC Atomstroyexport (JSC ASE) Valery Limarenko said.

The chief of JSC ASE, a key foreign trade engineering company of State Corporation "Rosatom" for construction of nuclear power facilities abroad, said Rooppur plant`s design was made in line with the world`s first "Generation 3+" NPP of Novovoronezh plant, now in operation in Russia.

"This (Novovoronezh) is the safest nuclear power plant that has ever been exploited in the world," Limarenko said adding Bangladeshi experts preferred the Novovoronezh`s technology to be replicated in Roopur because of its security features.

He said works were now underway to solidify the soil at the plant site at Rooppur so the plant could be built on a stable soil.

Talking to BSS Vice-president of project in Bangladesh Maksim V. Elchishchev said the State Corporation Rosatom has undertaken necessary measures for ensuring safety and security of the project.

"We will arrange latest technologies and install 3+ tier security measures as a safeguard of the plant," he said.

He said Russia will start building the reactor for Rooppur this year as per the contract strictly complying with the IAEA terms and conditions.

Their comments came on the sidelines of 9th Atomexpo 2017 being staged by Russia`s State-run atomic energy corporation ROSATOM to highlight "Nuclear as the Basis of Future Carbon-Free Energy Production" while the event drew over 5,000 participants representing more than 600 companies from 62 countries.
