MOSCOW, September 12 (RIA Novosti) - Russian nuclear experts have presented a project for the new Iranian nuclear power plant Bushehr-2 at a seminar in Tegeran, Rosatom's Atomenergomash stated in a Friday release.
Several Russian companies, including OKB Gidropress and Atomstroyexport participated in the seminar. From the Iranian side the event was attended by members of parliament, experts from the department of nuclear power plants, representatives of the supervisory authority, and scientific organizations.
Earlier it was reported that Russia and Iran planned to sign a contract for the construction of two new units of the Iranian Bushehr NPP before the end of 2014.
The construction of a nuclear power plant in Bushehr was started in 1974 by the German concern Kraftwerk Union AG. In August 1992, the governments of Russia and Iran signed an agreement for the construction of NPP, and in January 1995 signed a contract to complete the construction of the first power station.
Russian Atomstroyexport and its contractors have managed to integrate Russian equipment into the construction, which was established several decades ago by the German Kraftwerk Union UG team, and have also used about 12 thousand tons of German equipment.
The first unit of the plant transferred operations to Iran in September 2013 with the final stage and commercial operations scheduled for 2015.
