    Russia’s Rusatom Service expects to sign Iran’s Bushehr nuclear power plant four-year contract by the end of 2016.

    PARIS (Sputnik) – Russia’s Rusatom Service, a subsidiary of the Rosatom atomic energy corporation, expects to sign a four-year contract to service unit 1 of Iran’s Bushehr nuclear power plant by the end of 2016, Rusatom Service Deputy General Director Mikhail Poznyakov said Monday.

    "We will sign a new four-year contract at the end of this year," Poznyakov said at a seminar on Russian-French nuclear energy cooperation, adding that Tehran requested Moscow to provide maintenance staff for the unit.
