As the ceremony of first concrete pouring into the reactor building foundation of Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant in going to take place on November, 30, children from Rooppur High School organised a Flash Mob “I LOVE ROOPPUR” to raise awareness among the local people about the project, said a press release.

More than 300 children wearing T-shirts and caps of Bangladesh’s flag color - green and red formed a live figure ‘I LOVE ROOPPUR’.

The first concrete ceremony will mark the beginning of construction of Bangladesh’s first nuclear power plant at Rooppur and will witness the participation of the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the Director General of Russia’s Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation Alexey Likhachev among others.

The construction of the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (RNPP) is implemented under an intergovernmental agreement signed between Russia and Bangladesh in November, 2011.

In December, 2015, ASE Group of Companies, an engineering division of ROSATOM State Atomic Energy Corporation, signed a contract to construct Rooppur NPP consisting of two VVER-1200 units with a capacity of 1200 MW each.

VVER-1200 is a flagship nuclear reactor and a core product of Russia’s ROSATOM State Atomic Energy Corporation.

The construction site is located 160 km from Dhaka on the east bank of the Padma river. The units-1 and 2 are expected to go into operation in 2023 and 2024 respectively.
