The Volgodonsk Branch of JSC "AEM-technology" "Atommash" completed the feeding of the first Steam Generator for the "Rooppur" NPP. The next stage of manufacture involves welding of the bottoms. The equipment will be subjected to hydraulic tests and a whole range of test measures, including eddy current test of SG tubes.
Core Barrel of the Reactor Pressure Vessel for Rooppur NPP has been produced at the Volgodonsk Branch of JSC “AEM-technology”. The next important stage will be the installation of the Grid and Support elements. After the Grid and Support elements are installed, the test assembly of Core Barrel with the Baffle and Protective Tube Unit will be carried out.
At the Branch of JSC "AEM-technology" in Volgodonsk (part of the Rosatom engineering division - "Atomenergomash"), the plant's specialists completed a finishing weld connecting the two halves of the reactor. This is a key stage in the manufacture of the reactor pressure vessel for the first Unit of the "Rooppur" NPP in Bangladesh.
Currently the first steam generator vessel weighing up to 160 ton is finishing the machining process. Within a month, the item will be ready for installation of primary circuit header. The other three heat exchanger vessels are on different stages of production: machining, inspection performance. Today at Atommash,there are 4 more steam generator vessels for Rooppur NPP second unit at different stages of manufacturing
The Minister of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh has inspected the progress of NPP equipment manufacture at Atommash
The main purpose of the visit was to check the status of manufacture of NPP equipment for two units of Rooppur NPP under construction in Bangladesh. “It is not just a business project. It is a project of two friendly countries.
