Arborvitae, mango trees and palms have been planted in Anuvijay township.
On June 22, the Day of Remembrance and Sorrow, more than 70 employees of the Kudankulam NPP construction project (its General Designer and General Contractor being the Engineering Division of ROSATOM) took part in the international "Garden of Memory” event. In Anuvijay township, where Russian specialists live, trees and flowers have been planted to pay homage to heroes of the Great Patriotic War.
“We have started together today, to plant arborvitae, mango trees and palm trees as part of the “Garden of Memory” project. This is a very important event that reminds us of the stamina, courage and price that came with the Great Victory,” noted Anton Chistyakov, head of the ASE JSC Construction department at the Kudankulam NPP site. “It is essential that the Kudankulam NPP construction site has joined today this campaign and contributed to planting of 27 million trees, which is a live monument to the feat of the great victorious nation.”
Earlier employees of the Rooppur NPP (the People's Republic of Bangladesh) and Paks-2 NPP (Hungary) construction sites (the Engineering Division of ROSATOM is the general designer and general contractor for construction of these nuclear facilities) joined the “Garden of Memory” campaign.
