Don't worry, it's only an x-ray dose...

Science and Technology Affairs Minister Yeafesh Osman today said that the installation cost of Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (RNPP) is higher than that of India as Bangladesh is new to implement such a power plant.

He also spelt out a number of reasons behind the excessive cost of the power plant compared to Kudunkulam Nuclear Power Plant in India.

...
...Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant project area was made usable for implementing a nuclear power plant, steps were taken like shore protection and filling up soils of the nuclear power plant area as it is situated on the bank of Padma River as the reason of increasing cost of RNPP.

Proposal was made 58 years ago to build nuclear power plant.

2013, a group of Bangladeshi scientists and the global diaspora voiced profound concern over the safety and economic viability of the plant. Several separate issues were raised, from the unsuitability of the site to the obsolescence of the VVER-1000 model proposed, questionable financing arrangements and 
 lack of agreement with Russia over nuclear waste disposal

By December 2015 The Daily Star reported that the estimated cost of the plant had climbed to US$13 billion, from statements of around US$4 billion made earlier in the same year.  German based Transparency International expressed concern on 28 December 2015 about the safety of the proposed plant

However, itwil be ookey because  Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission received, from Bangladesh Atomic Energy Regulatory Authority, the design and construction license.  Only Vishnu has higher authority...

On 14 July 2018, first concrete was poured for Unit 2.  Rosatom began installing a 200-tonne core catcher as the first large piece of equipment in the reactor building of Rooppur 1, describing it as "a unique protection system"

Bangladesh's development strategy sees the country becoming a middle-income nation by 2021.   The officials could hardly contain their pride. "we have nuclear core catcher"

 The ministry of science and technology  estimated in 2014 that US$6.2 billion will be needed in the next decade to achieve the goals of Vision 2021

The Padma is one of the major rivers of Bangladesh, and satellite imagery shows that it has been growing in size, transforming in shape, and changing in location for at least the past 30 years. It forms in India at the junction of the Ganges and Jamuna Rivers, then merges with the Meghna River and ultimately empties into the Bay

Yeah, well, it cost Tepco, GE, Japan and in effect, the world, a lot, too.

Totally worth it.
