Russia delivers RPV and steam generator for Rooppur-1

Russian overseas nuclear equipment supplier Atomstroyexport has delivered the reactor pressure vessel and one of four steam generators for the first unit of the Rooppur nuclear power station under construction in Bangladesh.

Atomstroyexport said transportation of the equipment to the construction site took about 10 weeks, with a distance covered of more than 14,000 km along land, sea and river routes.

The RPV and steam generators are among the largest reactor components, weighing about 330 and 340 tonnes respectively. They were manufactured at an Atommash production site near Volgodonsk in southwest Russia.
