Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant India and Bangladesh

31 March 2021 Current Affairs:India has reached an agreement with Bangladesh that the Indian company will develop the transmission line for the Rooppur nuclear power plant in Bangladesh.  Highlights: ♦ This is a 2.4 GWe nuclear power plant under construction in Bangladesh. ♦ It is being constructed in Rooppur on the banks of the Padma River in Pabna District, Bangladesh. ♦ Two units are expected to be completed in 2022 and 2024. Each will generate 1200MW of electricity. ♦ It is of great significance because it will become the first nuclear power plant in Bangladesh. ♦ The Rooppur project is the first plan to launch an atomic energy project in a third country under the India-Russia agreement. ♦ In March 2018, Russia, Bangladesh and India signed a tripartite memorandum of understanding for the Rooppur nuclear power project in Moscow, Russia. ♦ It was built by the Russian Rosatom State Atomic Energy Company. ♦ In June 2018, the infrastructure professional of Hindustan Construction Co., Ltd. (HCC) won the contract for the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant. ♦ The Russian side is carrying out the project according to the "turnkey" principle, which says that the contractor is responsible for any problems that arise in the factory. ♦ This will be the first time that an Indian company has participated in any nuclear project outside the country.  ♦ Since India is not a member of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), it cannot directly participate in the construction of Nuclear reactors.
