Main equipment of the reactor compartment of Unit 1 of Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant, the country's first, were delivered to the construction site, according to a press release of Rosatom.

On November 10, a special barge delivered reactor pressure vessel for VVER-1200 and a steam generator to the nuclear power plant construction site.

Earlier, on October 20, the equipment arrived on the cargo vessel called “Daisy” at Mongla port, where it was reloaded onto a river barge.

The transportation of heavy-weight equipment (the weight of the reactor vessel - 333.6 tons, the steam generator - 340 tons) to the Rooppur NPP construction site took almost 2.5 months.

The reactor pressure vessel and the steam generator were manufactured at the Atommash plant in Volgodonsk, a branch of the AEM-technologies company (part of the Rosatom machine-building division - Atomenergomash JSC).

The reactor is a vertical cylindrical body with an elliptical bottom, inside which the core and internals are located while steam generator is a cylindrical vessel with two elliptical bottoms.

The Rooppur NPP is planned to be built within the framework of an intergovernmental agreement between Russia and Bangladesh, which was concluded in November 2011.

In the fall of 2013, the foundation stone of the future power plant was laid.

The plant will consist of two power units with VVER-type reactors, the life cycle of which is 60 years with the possibility of extension for another 20 years.
