VIENNA, September 15. /TASS/. Iran hopes for Russia’s assistance in financing a project for the construction of two new power units at the Bushehr nuclear power plant, Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), told journalists on Tuesday on the sidelines of the 59th general conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
He said the Iranian side had met with Russia’s Rosatom CEO Sergey Kiriyenko to discuss a number of projects, including the Bushehr-1 nuclear plant that had already been commissioned. Apart from that, he said, the sides had discussed steps on the construction of two new units at the Bushehr plant. Russia had promised to help in financial issues, he added.
In November 2014, Russian and Iran signed in Moscow a package of agreements on the construction of eight nuclear power units in Iran, including a contract for the construction of the Bushehr’s second stage that provided for the building of two nuclear units with a possible expansion to four units.
Earlier, deputy head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Mohammad Ahmadian said investments in the construction of Bushehr’s two new power units might reach $30 billion.
Apart from that, in line with the Russia-Iran agreements, the sides plan to build four more power units at other plants.
