Background Information
Bangladesh has begun its preparations for nuclear power
in the 1960s and Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (Rooppur
NPP) Project site was selected in 1963;
The progress never passed the activities related to
preparatory stage of construction;
A resolution for immediate establishment of NPP to
combat existing power crisis was passed by the National
Parliament in 2010 ;
 Power System Master Plan 2010 of Bangladesh
Government indicates that Bangladesh Government wants
to introduce 2000 MWe of nuclear power by 2020;

IAEA Assistance to Use Simulator

BAEC has training Institute;

BAEC has proposed to establish an “Advanced Institute of Nuclear
Engineering and Technology (AINET)”with full facilities of NP
programme;

Public/Private Universities;

Bangladesh seek assistance to provide PC based simulator as
educational tools to the above mentioned Institutions;

IAEA may dispatch an expert mission to train a team from the
above mentioned Institutions;
Conclusions



Bangladesh faces a huge challenge in implementing
the Rooppur NPP and its total nuclear power;
A preliminary assessment has been chalked out a plan
to find out methods that can be applied to find out
our gaps and then fill them up;
Bangladesh seeks cooperation from the Russian
Federation in the form assistance package like
National training courses, Seminar/Workshop, Expert
Mission/Review and other form of bilateral
arrangements in establishing infrastructure for
“Rooppur NPP” building;
The End
Thank you for your
kind attention !
