( - Russia and Vietnam will jointly build an atomic energy research centre under a US$500 million project funded by the Russian government.



 The information was unveiled by Vyacheslav Alexandrovich Pershukov, deputy director general of the Russia State Nuclear Energy Corporation (Rosatom), at a March 18 meeting in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong, marking 30 years of the resumption of the Da Lat reactor.

Tuoi Tre news wire quoted Pershukov as saying the Russian government will provide financial assistance for Vietnam to build a centre in Da Lat and a branch in Hanoi.

The Da Lat facility will have a new reactor with a design capacity of 15MW, 30 times as much as the current Da Lat reactor, and radiation laboratories.

The Hanoi facility will conduct research on computers and real-time simulation systems on nuclear reactions.

The project will be completed by 2020.

In addition, the Vietnam Ministry of Science and Technology presented the insignia For the Cause of Science and Technology to 13 senior Russian experts who supported Vietnam in the field of nuclear technology.

Addressing the awards ceremony, Deputy Minister of Science and Technology Le Dinh Tien affirmed that the Vietnamese people will always be grateful to Russia for their valuable assistance during the past struggle for national independence and the current process of national construction and development.
