Iran’s Bushehr Nuclear Plant to Work at Full Capacity, IRNA Says

Feb. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Iran’s Bushehr nuclear plant, the country’s first, will start operating at full capacity at the beginning of the new Iranian year, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported, citing Iranian Atomic Energy Organization chief Fereydoun Abbasi-Davani.

Abbasi-Davani didn’t give a specific date. Iran’s new year starts on March 20th. He had said last month that Bushehr would start operating at full capacity on Feb. 1.

Iran linked the 1000-megawatt power plant, which had been disconnected for tests, to the national grid on Feb. 11 and it began generating 700 megawatts of electricity, Abbasi-Davani said yesterday, according to IRNA.
