Russian Rosatom’s JSC NIAEP company finishes the preparations for the construction of the second and third units of the Bushehr nuclear power plant in Iran, the company’s president, Valery Limarenko, said Monday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — An agreement to expand civilian nuclear energy cooperation and construct a total of eight additional nuclear reactors at Bushehr was signed between Russia and Iran on November 11, 2014.

“We are conducting the final works in Iran before the launch of the construction of the second and third units of the Bushehr nuclear power plant,” Limarenko told journalists during the Atomexpo 2016.

In 2014, Iran and Russia agreed on building two new nuclear reactors on the site of Bushehr, starting fall 2015.
