Special spectrometers will be used in the Automated Radiation Monitoring System (ARMS) of both units of Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (NPP).

This aims to measure the level of ionising radiation for assessing the safety of production lines, research facilities, and dosimetry control of the public, said a press release.

Institute for Physical and Technical Problems (IPTP) of Russia will manufacture and supply 16 sets of spectrometry equipment to Specialized Scientific Research Institute for Instrumentation Engineering (SNIIP) by the end of this year.

Both the organizations under the management of Rusatom Automated Control Systems (RASU) of Russia signed a contract to this effect recently.

Later on, SNIPP will integrate the equipment into ARMS for delivery to the Bangladesh side in the third quarter of 2023.

Spectrometers are used in industrial enterprises of the nuclear power industry, in mechanical engineering, mining, healthcare, and research laboratories.
