Installation of the dome on the reactor building of unit 3 at China;s Xudabao NPP under construction in Liaoning province was completed in a single operation. Previously this had required two stages. “This unique technological operation … made it possible to optimise the process and lift the dome 188 days ahead of schedule, said Alexey Bunik, vice president for projects in China and promising projects at Russia’s Atomstroyexport. “The dome weighing 740 tonnes, fully assembled on the ground, was raised by a crane and put on the reactor building in one manoeuvre.” He added: “I am sure that the effective joint work of Russian and Chinese specialists will allow the implementation of the Xudabao NPP project exactly on schedule.”

Country to have two Russia-supplied nuclear reactors The structure took 110 days to complete, 45 days ahead of schedule.Courtesy Rosatom. Workers have finished concreting the containment building for Unit 1 of the Rooppur nuclear power station under construction in Bangladesh, Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom said.

The structure took 110 days to complete, 45 days ahead of schedule, Rosatom said. The containment acts as a hermetic protection system, designed to withstand high external and internal pressures and protect against radiation release.

In March 2022, workers completed welding of the main circulation pipeline connecting the reactor pressure vessel with the steam generators and the reactor coolant pumps.
