Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

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.
