• Work starts on two new Iran nuclear reactors


    TEHRAN: Russian and Iranian firms began work on Saturday on two additional reactors at Iran’s nuclear power plant on the Gulf coast at Bushehr, the project manager said. The plant has been a bone of contention with Iran’s Gulf Arab neighbors, even after a deal limiting its nuclear ambitions was signed with major powers in July last year. Project manager Mahmoud Jafari said that construction of the two 1,000 MW reactors, which is being carried out jointly with an Iranian firm, would take a decade and cost up to $10 billion. Some 8,000 workers are involved in the project, which is being led by Russia’s Rosatom with Iran’s Nuclear Power Production and Development Company.
