The Novovoronezh NPP: The Ambassador of Bangladesh assessed the quality of professional training for the professionals at the Ruppur NPP

Ahsan Kamrul, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Bangladesh paid visit to the Novovoronezh nuclear power plant (a branch of Rosenergoatom JSC, part of the Electric Division of Rosatom JSC) on a delegation.

The visit had the purpose of strengthening the Russian-Bangladeshi ties over the use of atomic energy.

Director Vladimir Pivovarov along with the specialists of the Novovoronezh NPP provided their important guest with the information on the current state of the active nuclear power units of the NVNPP and the specifics of operating 3+ gen NPUs with VVER-1200 reactors.

As part of his visit, the ambassador saw the block control room (BPU), machine room, central control room, closed switchgear KRUE-500 of the innovative power unit No. 6 of the Novovoronezh NPP.

Mr. Kamrul also visited the training facility where Novovoronezh experts engaged in training of the Ruppur personnel within the framework of the bilateral contract. Over 1500 Bangladeshi nuclear experts are to undergo training and internship at the Novovoronezh NPP by the end of 2022.

The members of the delegation also visited a practical training session of the aspiring Bengali engineers specializing in special water treatment management. These sessions were conducted by the instructors from the Rosatom Technical Academy.

“The NPP in Novovoronezh is the first nuclear power plant I have ever visited, and it’s an excellent experience for me because we plan to build the Ruppur NPP in Bangladesh after the same design. I have a full picture of the new nuclear power plant in my country now. We have sent our best experts to undergo training in Novovoronezh, and I’m sure they’ll get invaluable experience and fundamental knowledge there,” Ahsan Kamrul noted.

Let’s remember that the Ruppur NPP is an evolutionary Russian project of a high power NPP with 3+ gen NPUs, fully in compliance with all international regulations. The nuclear power plant in Bangladesh will solve the issue of energy deficit in the region, as well as provide its citizens with new jobs.
