Russia welcomes participation of Indian companies in the construction of the Rooppur nuclear power plant (NPP) in Bangladesh, First Deputy Director General for operations management of Russia’s state-run nuclear corporation Rosatom Alexander Lokshin said.
"A trilateral cooperation agreement was signed this March in Moscow, and we expect Indian companies to participate in the tender in the near future. The issue is about the delivery of materials, certain types of equipment and construction and installation works. We will be very glad if Indian companies with experience of Kudankulam construction using (Russian) technologies participate in Rooppur NPP construction," he said at the ceremony of pouring the first concrete into the slab of the second power unit of the Rooppur NPP.
According to Lokshin, Russian nuclear technologies enjoy worldwide popularity.
