Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant in the southern namesake city generated 7.4 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity in the past fiscal that ended on March 20, the head of the power plant said.
"Of this figure, 6.8 billion kWh have been added to the national power grid," Hossein Ghaffari was also quoted as saying by IRNA on Tuesday. The Energy Ministry has forecast electricity demand to reach 56,000 megawatts this summer, up from a record high of 52,000 MW in the previous fiscal that ended in March.
Noting that during this period, the plant has only been disconnected from the national grid for 10.5 hours, Ghaffari said the plant's utilization factor has been registered at 85.3% in the past fiscal, indicating a 9% improvement compared with the year before.
The utilization factor or use factor is the ratio of the time that a piece of equipment is in use compared to the total time that it could be in use.
