Skolkovo resident exports heat exchange equipment to Rooppur NPP in Bangladesh
ReinnolС, Skolkovo resident from Ural, will supply network water sample coolers for power units No. 1 and 2 of Rooppur NPP in Bangladesh. The contract was signed in June 2022. Shipment of the first batch of 4 coolers is scheduled for January 2023.
Sample coolers are specialized heat exchangers that reduce the temperature of the working medium for chemical analysis. It allows the detection of the composition of impurities contained in water in order to avoid exceeding the level of standard indicators and to ensure the established mode of operation of the facility.
For ReinnolС, this is a new product. Thanks to strong engineering competencies and deep expertise in heat transfer processes, the company was able to master the production of equipment in a short time.
Oleg Pertsovsky, the chief operating officer of the energy efficiency cluster at the Skolkovo Foundation: “This is not the first time we are talking about the achievements of the ReinnolС company, a participant of the Skolkovo project. We are pleased with the dynamism of the company, which creates all new products based on its developments in the field of heat exchange equipment. Moreover, the products are used, among other things, at such critical facilities as nuclear power plants. It is also very important that the company is actively exploring not only new products, but also new geographic markets. I am sure that the company will maintain the pace of its development in the future, and we will try to support it using all available tools.”
Rooppur is a nuclear power plant under construction according to the Russian AES-2006 project, located on the eastern bank of the Padma River, 160 kilometers from the capital of Bangladesh, Dhaka. Rooppur NPP consists of two power units with modern VVER-1200 reactors with a capacity of 1200 MWe each. The launch of the first power unit of the station is scheduled for 2023, the second will begin operation in 2024.
Pavel Blokhin, founder of ReinnolС: “We are pleased to contribute to the development of peaceful nuclear energy and clean energy in the Republic of Bangladesh. The supply of sample coolers to Rooppur NPP is an important and exciting project that has encouraged us to explore new products, new industries, new countries and exciting new prospects.”
For the company, cooperation with the Rooppur NPP is not only another confirmation of the high export potential, but also a strengthening of positions in the nuclear power industry - in Russia and abroad.
