On June 11 support truss was installed in the design position in the reactor building of Unit 2 Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant in Bangladesh. The support truss is one of the most important elements of the equipment of the reactor pit and it is designed to reliably fasten the reactor vessel and protect it from weight and seismic loads. The truss is a welded metal structure, consisting of radial beams, which are poured with special concrete. The support truss is designed for thermal and radiation exposure over the entire lifetime of 60 years.
After completion of the installation of the support truss, the reactor pit will be concreted to the level of +16,500 meters and the thrust truss, which is designed to fasten the reactor vessel at the upper level, will be installed.
