MOSCOW, March 15. /TASS/. Construction and installation work has formally started on the site of Bushehr-2 Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) in Iran, Russian nuclear corporation Rosatom says on Wednesday.
Construction and installation work phase at Bushehr-2 NPP started on March 14. Representatives of the Russian general contractor participated in the official ceremony of the work start.
In November 2014, Nuclear Power Production and Development Company of Iran (NPPD) and Russia’s Atomstroiexport signed two contracts: for the construction of units 2, 3 of Bushehr-2 under the Engineering, Procurement and Construction terms and on a turnkey basis and for engineering studies and collection of data at the site of Bushehr-2. The total capacity of two units of WWER-1000 (Water-Water Energetic Reactor) will be 2,100 megawatt.
The implementation of Bushehr-2 project will take 10 years. The start-up of the second unit is planned for October 2024; the third unit will be launched in April 2026.
