Infrastructure major, Hindustan Construction Company Ltd. (HCC),
in the joint venture with MAX Group, a leading construction company in Bangladesh has
been awarded US$ 110 million (Rs.737 crore) contract by Russia’s State Nuclear Company,
JSC Atomstroyexport, for civil works of Turbine Island for Unit 1 of Rooppur Nuclear Power
Plant. HCC’s share in the JV is 40% (US$ 44 million / Rs.295 crore).
The Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant 190 km northwest of Dhaka will be built with Russian
technology and is equipped with two VVER Reactors of 1200 MW each. These reactors are
similar to the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant in Tamil Nadu.
Commenting on the new order win, Mr. Arjun Dhawan, Director and Group CEO, HCC said,
“HCC has become the first Indian company to participate in the international civil nuclear
market. We are confident of delivering this job on time with precision in quality, safety, and
state-of-the-art technology. We look forward to further project awards in Rooppur NPP and
expanding our infrastructure footprint in Bangladesh.”
Recently, India signed an agreement with Bangladesh for civil nuclear cooperation, under
which India has extended expertise and project support for Bangladesh’s first nuclear power
plant. India not being a member of Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) cannot participate
directly in the construction of atomic power reactors. But Indian companies can be involved
in construction and installation works and in the supply of equipment of non-critical category.
HCC is the only Indian company which has successfully constructed the nuclear power
project with Russian VVER type Light Water nuclear reactors.
HCC has constructed 65% of the country’s installed nuclear power capacity. 15 out of 24
nuclear reactors in India are built by HCC. India’s largest light water reactors built at
Kudankulam nuclear power plant was built by HCC in 2010. HCC is currently engaged in the
construction of the first phase of Integrated Nuclear Recycle Plant of BARC in Tarapur, Fast
Reactor Fuel Cycle Facility (FRFCF) in Kalpakkam and Units 7 & 8 (2×700 MW) PWHR at
Rawatbhata, Kota, Rajasthan.
