Radiation in Bushehr power plant lower than global standards

Bushehr, April 27, IRNA – Head of the Nuclear Committee and Member of the Majlis Energy Affairs Commission Ebrahim Karkhanei said on Monday that cumulative radiation dose in Bushehr nuclear power plant is 1,000 times lower than the global standards.
Karkhanei told IRNA on the sidelines of a visit of Majlis energy commission members to Bushehr power plant that management of Bushehr Power Plant by Iranian experts is source of honor.

He said Iranian creative forces have grown so much so that have taken full control of the power plant’s reactor and management.

The MP from Hamedan said Bushehr Power Plant provides high security for Iran and people of regional countries.

He noted that 80 percent of executive works for construction of Bushehr Power Plant were done prior to the Islamic Revolution of Iran and once it was decided that Russians complete construction of Bushehr power plant, they made presence in Bushehr for 15 to 20 years.

While Russians were present in Bushehr Power Plant to re-design the power plant from the German-style to Russian-one, Iranian experts tried to get enough knowledge about the technology and upgraded them, according to Karkhanei.

Bushehr nuclear power plant is of high standard in terms of safety, which is a strong point, the MP added.
