The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE), University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh (ULAB) has successfully conducted a webinar entitled "Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant: Working Principle, Radiation and Safety Issues" on Thursday, November 11, 2021. The resource person of the seminar was Mr. Ramit Kumar Sadhukhan, Lecturer, Department of EEE, ULAB who has completed M.Sc. in Nuclear Power Engineering and Thermal Physics from Russian Federation with full scholarship from the Bangladesh Government and the Russian Government. The event was moderated by Prof. M. Mofazzal Hossain, Dean of School of Science & Engineering and Head of EEE Department. All the faculty members of EEE, students from inside and outside ULAB participated in the webinar.
The facilitator’s speech covered a wide range of topics like background, design features and working principle of Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (RNPP). The convincing reasons behind choosing Generation III+ VVER- 1200 nuclear reactor with modern safety system from the Russian Federation was also stated. Furthermore, Mr. Sadhukhan stated that the radiation impacts on population from natural radioactivity and tritium before commissioning and predicted atmospheric emissions during normal operation of the RNPP showed that there is negligible radiological risk on the population of Bangladesh both before and after commissioning of the RNPP.
