New Bushehr Reactor in 8 Years

Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Director Ali Akbar Salehi says Tehran and Moscow have signed an agreement for the construction of two more nuclear power plants in Iran.
“We have signed an agreement with Russia to build two more nuclear power plants in (the southern port city of) Bushehr,” Salehi told Press TV on Monday, adding that the construction of both power plants will probably begin “next year”.
“We are expecting our second nuclear power plant to go online in a matter of eight years,” he said, adding that “our third nuclear power plant will be operational two years later.”
The AEOI head said the nuclear power plants will “produce electricity without polluting the environment.”
Power plants running on fossil fuel produce more than seven million tons of greenhouse gases and pollute air to produce 1,000 megawatts of electricity, he said.
