Though the development works of Roppur Nuclear Energy Plant (RNPP) are accomplished on schedule, there could also be delays in energy provide to the venture resulting from transmission traces. The primary unit of this venture is anticipated to enter manufacturing in December subsequent yr. However the transmission line wanted to deliver the electrical energy produced from right here to the nationwide grid has been difficult by the well timed completion of the work.
The associates of the RNPP venture say that if there’s a delay within the set up of the transmission line, even after the completion of the Roppur nuclear energy plant, the supply of electrical energy from the venture at a sure time shall be unsure. Roppur Nuclear Energy Plant is carried out by the Ministry of Science and Expertise. And the Ministry of Electrical energy, Power and Mineral Sources will set up the ability transmission line from this venture to the nationwide grid. A high-level assembly of the 2 ministries was just lately held on this topic. Architect Yafes Osman, Minister of Science and Expertise, and Nasrul Hamid Bipu, Minister of State for Energy, Power and Mineral Sources, had been current at this assembly.
In line with a supply on the Ministry of Science and Expertise, the RNPP is the nation’s first nuclear energy venture. Moreover, it’s the largest and costliest venture within the nation thus far. The federal government needs to inaugurate this electrical energy venture on the predetermined time. Work progressed accordingly. The development of transmission traces was additionally authorized in 2018 to attain the aim. However the Ministry of Power is now speaking in regards to the greenback disaster as the explanation for the delay in its work. Importing transmission line tools from abroad has turn into difficult because of the greenback disaster. Nevertheless, the supply additionally stated that most efforts are being made and methods are being sought to maneuver the whole lot ahead throughout the given timeframe.
On this state of affairs, when requested if it could be doable to produce electrical energy to the nationwide grid from this venture in some unspecified time in the future, the Minister of Science and Expertise, Yafes Osman, stated that the Ministry of Electrical energy was planning and attempting to advance the development of the transmission line. . If we (Ministry of Science) should do one thing, we are going to cooperate as a lot as doable. I hope Roppur’s work shall be accomplished in time. Up to now, so good. It’s hoped that the work on the transmission line will even be accomplished throughout this era.
The primary unit of the two-unit Roppur nuclear energy plant will begin manufacturing in December 2023 and the second unit in December 2024 in response to the earlier schedule. Constructed with the total cooperation of Russia, the 2 models of this venture will produce a complete of 2400 megawatts of electrical energy from every of the 2 models. At the moment, this venture has turn into extra vital to satisfy the wants of the nation within the context of the worldwide electrical energy and power disaster.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina stated in the course of the reactor set up ceremony of the second unit of this venture on October 19 that this nuclear energy plant will play an vital position in constructing a developed and affluent Bangladesh by 2041.
In the meantime, the supply from the Ministry of Science and Expertise additionally stated that Bangladesh and Russia worth the manufacturing of this venture on time. The work of this venture didn’t cease even in the course of the two-year lengthy corona epidemic. The continuing conflict between Ukraine and Russia was not allowed to have an effect on the work of this venture. Now, so that the manufacturing is not going to be delayed because of the transmission line, actions are persevering with in varied instructions to shortly full the development of the transmission line. Additionally it is believed that Russian cooperation is required for this. Help could also be requested from the nation on key points, together with transmission line tools. The supply additionally stated that cooperation has been sought from the Ministry of Energy, Power and the Ministry of Science and Expertise for cooperation in these areas.
When requested if Russian cooperation could be sought within the building of the transmission line, Yafes Osman stated cooperation could possibly be sought. We are able to inform them that one thing needs to be completed. We wish to end this venture on time.
On October 19, in the course of the set up ceremony of the second unit of the RNPP, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina talked about that the primary unit of the venture will go into manufacturing in December subsequent yr. On this event, the Director Common of the Russian State Atomic Power Company (Rosatom), the venture’s executing company, Alexei Likhachev, additionally stated that preparations had been underway for the fueling of the primary unit of the venture. subsequent yr.
In the meantime, subsequent yr in September or October, the gasoline for the Roppur nuclear energy station shall be introduced in. The gasoline for this venture is uranium which shall be provided by the Russian power provide firm. Bangladesh needs to deliver gasoline in September. However Russia talked about October. The case is at this stage. However the gasoline will arrive by September or October. The RNPP venture director specifies that there shall be an obligation to take cost inside two months of the arrival of the power. Shaukat Akbar stated.
