Pabna, July 10 (V7N)- Forty-eight Bangladeshi specialists, who will work on the first unit of the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) project in Ishwardi, Pabna, have completed their pre-licensing training.
This information was disclosed in a press release issued by Rosatom on Monday (July 8) afternoon.
The press release stated that the training was conducted by Russia's Rosatom Technical Academy at the academy located within the Rooppur project. The trained specialists include those who will operate the main control room, as well as chief and deputy chief engineers.
After the training, all participants were required to pass a basic licensing examination. However, to work on the project, they must obtain licensing approval from the Bangladesh Atomic Energy Regulatory Authority (BAERA).
Sergey Lyulin, project director of Rosatom Technical Academy, stated in the press release that the training program was completed in several phases. After receiving theoretical and practical training at Rosatom Technical Academy in Russia, the Bangladeshi specialists worked as apprentices at the Novovoronezh Nuclear Power Plant.
Subsequently, prior to pre-licensing training, they underwent six months of training at the Rooppur project site. The knowledge of the specialists was assessed based on ten criteria at each stage of the training. Only after meeting these criteria were they recommended for initial appointment.
The press release mentioned that the Safety Culture and Personnel Reliability Competency Center of Rosatom Technical Academy used a special psycho-diagnostic method to analyze the personal and psycho-physiological characteristics of the trainees. Such analyses are considered extremely important from a professional standpoint.
Sergey Lyulin added, "Bangladeshi specialists have received training ranging from one to three years, considering their future workplace and responsibilities. As a result, they will be able to perform their duties with safety and professionalism."
