Cyber security measures of Rooppur power plant in dark
Many participants expressed their worries over the matter at a seminar, titled  “Entering the World of Nuclear Energy: Key Security Issues for Bangladesh”, in Dhaka on Wednesday. The event was organized by Bangladesh Institute of Peace and Security Studies (BIPSS). Replying to a query, Dr Petr Topychkanov from Carnegie Moscow Centre said, “Cyber security must be ensured. Otherwise there might be a huge risk. If still there is no initiative taken it should be taken as early as possible.” Contacted, Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant’s Project Director Mohammad Shawkat Akbar told the Dhaka Tribune that their team had been working on the measures to ensure cyber security as well as other safety measures. However, an official of Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission (BAEC) said the Project Director’s explanation is not convincing enough. The official, who preferred not to be named, added, “No initiatives regarding cyber security or other things have so far been taken, what the Project Director said is not convincing. The matter is also absent in the deal of the Rooppur Project.” Replying to another query, Dr Topychkanov assured that Russia will take back the highly radioactive nuclear waste of Rooppur power plant. Russia has a system to keep the radioactive nuclear waste making it further processed and has been taking the nuclear waste from others countries, he noted. Bangladesh signed a contract with Russia on December 25, 2015 for the construction and commissioning of a nuclear power plant at Rooppur in Pabna at the cost of $12.65 billion. The BAEC, under the Ministry of Science and Technology, is in charge of implementing this project. The nuclear power plant is expected to add 2,400MW of electricity to the national grid by 2023.
