TEHERAN, December 01, 16:11 /ITAR-TASS/. Iran is planning to build a second nuclear power plant in the southern province of Bushehr, the Fars News Agency quited President Hassan Rouhani as saying on Sunday.
“Iran has plans to generate more electricity through the nuclear energy in the coming years by building a second nuclear power plant in Bushehr,” he said.
Iran signed the Bushehr contract with Russia in 1995. The nuclear power plant reached its full capacity by August 2012.
“Based on our estimates, the second nuclear power plant will be built in the same province and I hope that we can use the facilities of this province,” Rouhani added.
Earlier, Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi repeatedly said that his country hoped for active cooperation in this area with Russia.
Iranian officials said that the construction of a new nuclear plant in that country would be launched in 2014 jointly with Russia.
Iran’s official representatives repeatedly say that the country’s needs in electricity generated by nuclear plants will reach 20,000 megawatts by 2020.
The Fars agency also noted that other countries of the Gulf also had needs in electricity and Iran would be able to export it to these countries.
