Work Begins on Constructing 2nd Unit of Nuclear Power Plant in Bushehr

Work for pouring concrete at the site of the second unit of Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant in south Iran started on Sunday.

Construction of the first unit of the plant in Bushehr was carried out by Russia. It came on stream in 2011 and reached full capacity (1,000 MW) the following year.

The second unit of the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant is scheduled to come on stream in six years, while the third unit will be finished in 8 years, Mehr News Agency reported.

The second and third units will each have a capacity of 1,057 MW. Over $10 billion has been allocated for constructing the two units.

“Cooperation between the two countries began many years ago and continues. We delivered the first unit of the power plant that has generated more than 40 billion kWh of electricity so far,” Alexander Lokshin, a deputy of Rosatom, said at the ceremony in Bushehr.

In 2014, Iran signed a contract with the Russian company Rosatom and its subsidiaries to build the two reactors on the same site.
