By the 4th quarter of 2023, uranium will be widely used as a fuel for nuclear power for the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant. Then it will be added to the national grid as stated by the project director and the managing director at the Nuclear Power Plant Company Bangladesh Limited, on Thursday while talking to media personnel.
Before that can be achieved, safety measures and essential infrastructure like the power grid and telecommunication have to be constructed and it is to be certified by the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) visiting team.
According to the integrated work plan, five missions of the IAEA will visit the project site by mid-2023. Additionally, it will also see the country’s capability to operate the plant.
