Bushehr nuclear power plant connected to national grid

Bushehr nuclear power plant connected to national grid

The Bushehr nuclear power plant was connected to the national grid on Saturday night, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran announced.

At 23:29 local time, the plant with a capacity of 60 megawatts, was connected to the national grid, the AEOI said.

The official ceremony for the launch of the plant will be held on September 12.

The IAEO officials had previously said the plant will reach 100 percent of its capacity within three months and produce 1000 megawatts of electricity.

When the 1000-megawatt plant reaches its optimal capacity, it will generate one-fortieth of the electricity output of the country.

The power plant first was launched in August 2010 as engineers loaded 163 fuel rods into the reactor under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

The plant is located near the port city of Bushehr on the coast of the Persian Gulf.

Over the next 20 years, Iran plans to build enough nuclear power plants to generate 20,000 megawatts of electricity.

The launch of Iranís first nuclear is a disappointment for the United States and Israel, which claim the Islamic Republic is using its civilian nuclear energy program as a cover for a nuclear weapons program.

However, the UN nuclear watchdog has conducted numerous inspections of Iranís nuclear facilities and has never found evidence of diversion.

Russia completed the Bushehr plant despite pressure from the United States and Israel. The plant will be operated by Russian and Iranian technicians for several years.


So that they can be targeted by Stuxnet again? Just doesnít make no sense.

And what happens when we begin the attack on Iran (or back Israel's attack on Iran)?  Will Russia defend their friend?  Could this friendship between Russia and Iran be the reason we have not gone after Iran yet?
