Rooppur on schedule for 2023 operation

20 september 2019

Bangladesh’s first commercial nuclear power plant, being built in cooperation with Russia, is on schedule to be connected to the grid and begin operation as planned in 2023, an official from state nuclear corporation Rosatom told RIA Novosti.

The official was responding to comments by Bangladeshi foreign minister Abul Kalam Abdul Momen that completion of the two 1,200-MW V-392M pressurised water reactor units being built at Rooppur might be delayed.
