DHAKA, October 2 (Itar-Tass) - A contract to build the first nuclear power plant for Bangladesh was signed by the president of Russia's NIAEP construction consortium Valery Limarenko and Abu Sayed Mohammad Firoz from the Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission on Wednesday.
Limarenko said work would take about two years. Costs of the project were not disclosed but Limarenko said Russia had already agreed to provide a $500 million loan to finance preparations before construction began.
The plant will be built at Rooppur, 160 kilometers from Dhaka, in India's north-west. Twin-unit 2,000 megawatt capacity will operate from 2020.
