Construction of 2 new nuclear power plants planned: Kamalvandi

Tehran, April 7, IRNA – Deputy Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said on Thursday that two new nuclear power plants will soon be built in Bushehr after examining one or two technical points.
Talking to IRNA about the latest situation of Iran-Russia cooperation in the sphere of constructing two nuclear power plants in Bushehr, he added, ‘We built Nuclear Power Plant I, and the power plants II and III will also be commissioned soon.’

As regards to Iran-China nuclear cooperation, he said that talks are underway and negotiations on small 100-megawatt power plans are more serious.

Kamalvandi, also spokesman of AEOI, hoped that Iran ties with China will be bolstered in different fields.

He further maintained that Iran’s nuclear industry horizon is bright and implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) also contributed to the issue.

‘JCPOA opened up new atmosphere before us, which will help to development of nuclear industry,’ he said.

Since nuclear know-how has been indigenized in Iran, nuclear achievements will continue to grow, as some 12 achievements were unveiled this year, Kamalvandi said.
