    Iran is negotiating with Russia to build new units for the Bushehr nuclear power plant

    January 24, 2022 - Iraq News Gazette


      23 January 2022 (NINA) Baghdad Representative of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Behrouz Kamalvandi, said that Iran is negotiating with Russia to build new nuclear reactors at the Bushehr plant.

      "Tehran and Moscow are negotiating the construction of new units at the nuclear power plant in Bushehr," Iran's Press TV channel quoted Kamalvandi as saying.

      According to the representative of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI): "The project is in line with Iran's plan to generate at least 10,000 megawatts of electricity through nuclear power."

      "We expect to exchange delegations in the near future to implement new projects," Kamalvandi said.

      The representative of the organization pointed out that one of the projects planned with Russia in the field of nuclear energy will cost Iran about five billion dollars.

      For several years, Iran and Russia have been working on the largest project in the development of nuclear energy, to build power units at the Bushehr plant. The first unit of the nuclear power plant, which was completed with the participation of Russia, was connected to Iran's national energy system in September 2011.

      Work is underway to establish the second unit, and a contract was signed to build the third power unit.
