Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant ‘Kupol’ of Russia, the manufacturer of Tor-M short-range air defense system, has supplied cooling systems to the ‘Ruppur’ Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) in Bangladesh and Akkuyu nuclear power plant in Turkey. Almaz-Antey is the manufacturer of Turkish S-300 missile systems.
Russia’s state-owned atomic power company Rosatom has obtained permission to start construction of the nuclear reactor facility in the Akkuyu power station and Ruppur nuclear power plant in Bangladesh.
IEMZ Kupol is part of Russia’s Almaz-Antey VKO Concern. A separate workshop has been created at the facility to produce cooling systems.
“With this equipment, we have already equipped several nuclear power plants, including those abroad – for example, Ruppur in Bangladesh, working for the Turkish Akkuyu”, said the buckets in an interview to Interfax on Monday.
Ruppur will be the Bangladesh’s first nuclear power plant, and the first of two units are expected to go into operation in 2023. The VVER-1200/523 Nuclear reactor and critical infrastructure are being built by the Russian Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation.
