Dewan Sobuj, Ishwardi (Pabna): The first part of the reactor coolant pump (RCPS) of Housing 2, a nuclear power plant under construction in Bangladesh, has been assembled. This information was given in a notification sent to the media of Rosatom on Wednesday night, June 23.
It is known that after the assembly and welding work is completed, the pump body is given heat treatment to relieve the pressure of welding. According to the preparation policy, this RCPS body is kept at a temperature of more than 600 degrees for several hours. At the end of the heat treatment all the welds are tested by di-penetrant and ultrasonic tests.The RCPS body will then be taken to the machine.
The RCPS body is a first class protection item.
The reactor coolant pump supplies coolant circulation to the primary circuit of the nuclear power plant at a pressure of 180 MPa and a temperature of 300 degrees. A power unit reactor plant has four RCP sets. The Rooppur nuclear power plant is being built according to Russian design. It is being designed and built by the engineering department of the Russian state corporation Rosatom.
The power plant will use 2 units of VVER 1200 reactors with a production life of 60 years which is likely to be extended for another 20 years. The power generation capacity of each unit is 1200 MW.
This M technology company will prepare the preliminary equipment of the reactor hall of the 2 units of the nuclear power plant project.
