Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant Supplying Nat’l Grid Steadily
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – An Iranian official said the country’s nuclear power plant near the southern port city of Bushehr has supplied around 5.5 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity to the national grid over the past eight months.
The Bushehr nuclear power plant generated a record amount of 7.4 billion kWh of electricity in the previous Iranian year (March 2017-March 2018), more than 90 percent of which was supplied to the national grid, Hossein Ghaffari, an official at the plant said Saturday.
He also noted that the power plant was reconnected to the national grid on May 1, 2018, after a temporary shutdown for periodic maintenance and fuel reloading, since when it has provided 5.5 billion kWh of electricity for the national grid.
In September 2013, Iran took temporary control of its Bushehr nuclear power plant.
