Russia to build 2,000-MW Nuclear Power Plant in Bangladesh
Russia will build a 2,000-megawatt nuclear power plant in Bangladesh.
Construction will begin in January 2014 with total costs estimated at more than $2 billion, chief of Russia’s Rosatom nuclear agency Sergei Kiriyenko said on Tuesday.
Russia will give Bangladesh a $500-million loan under an agreement signed during Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s visit to Moscow.
She welcomed the agreement, saying that the loan would help finance the basic construction preparations.
Later, Russia will provide another, larger loan of $1.5 billion. The plant will be put into operation in the early 2020s.Voice of Russia
