Shodesh Shipping was nominated as an exclusive logistics agent in Bangladesh to handle and deliver seven batches of highly sensitive nuclear fuel to the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (RNPP).
For this undertaking, the company received three months of training under the Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission (BAEC), Bangladesh Army, Bangladesh Police, Department of Fire Service and Civil Defense as well as Atomstroyexport - the main contractor of the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant.
After the cargo arrived on a special flight from Russia, Shodesh Shipping transported the uranium to the project site under special security arrangements, following international guidelines and using special vehicles escorted by the armed forces, fire brigade, health service personnel, as well as other necessary security units.
On the 5th of October, the certificate of safe handling of fuel was officially given by the Russian fuel supplier to the RNPP. Shodesh Shipping will be handled further deliveries in the future.
