Bangladeshi officials get safety training

A group of Bangladesh army officials involved in the physical protection of Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (RNPP) received a two-week training course on "Physical Protection of Nuclear Facilities" in Moscow recently.

The course was conducted by specialists from Global Nuclear Safety and Security (GNSSI) Institute of the Rosatom Technical Academy.

During the course, participants learned about organising and building physical protection of nuclear facilities systems and got acquainted with the major international documents.

In addition to lectures, participants got involved in extensive practical work with various means and devices of physical protection at a special training ground complex in the Technical Academy of Rosatom. 

They received the necessary knowledge and experience that allowed them to understand the specific features of each stage in building a physical protection system for a nuclear power plant.

"We have received precise theoretical and practical information on those issues that are important to us at the moment during the construction of the Rooppur NPP, and will also be useful in the future," said Brigadier General Irfanul Islam Khan, leader of the Bangladesh team.

The Bangladesh army has been creating a physical protection system for Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant since 2020.  Russia is actively supporting Bangladesh in this regard.

The Global Nuclear Safety and Security Institute of the Rosatom Technical Academy is the leading educational institution of the Rosatom State Corporation for advanced training and retraining of specialists of nuclear facilities, federal executive authorities, military and special departments, and other organizations on anti–terrorist support, integrated global security, including physical protection, protection of state security secrets, economic and information security.
