Installation of an internal shaft has been completed at unit 1 of the Rooppur NPP in Bangladesh. The shaft is made of austenitic stainless steel and is an integral part of the reactor. It weighs more than 73 tonnes with a length of more than 108 metres and a diameter is 3.61 metres. The in-vessel shaft is a part of the main elements of in-vessel devices. It contains a baffle and the fuel assemblies. The bottom of the shaft is perforated to allow the circulation of the coolant (double desalination water) the fuel elements.

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.

The first steam generator in a set of four has been installed for the Kursk 2-1 nuclear plant under construction in western Russia, developer Atomstroyexport said.

In a pressurised water reactor, the steam generators act as heat exchangers where water carrying heat generated from the nuclear reaction is used to turn demineralised water into steam. They are among the heaviest and largest components on the nuclear island.

Atomstroyexport, a subsidiary of Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom, said the Kursk 2-1 project schedule is for the installation of all four steam generators and the reactor pressure vessel before the end of 2022.

The reactor pressure vessel has been installed at the Kudankulam-3 nuclear power plant under construction in Tamil Nadu, southern India, Atomstroyexport, the engineering division of Russia’s state-owned nuclear corporation Rosatom said.

The RPV, which weighs about 330 tonnes, is one of the largest reactor components, a vessel containing the nuclear reactor coolant, core shroud, and the reactor core and fuel.

Construction of the Generation III Kudankulam-3, a Russia-procured VVER- V-412, 917-MW pressurised water reactor, began in June 2017.
