Russia Schedules March Start for Nuclear Construction in Iran

Bushehr nuclear plant in Iran

Russia and Iran say they plan to begin construction on a second nuclear reactor in March.
The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran said total investment in the project is estimated at $11 billion, according to TradeArabia. Russia and Iran held a meeting in December 2015 that reaffirmed their mutual interest in building Russian-designed reactors in the country. Russia completed the 1,000-MW Bushehr nuclear plant in 2013, with plans for at least two more reactors at the site.
The two countries signed agreements in November 2014 to build eight nuclear reactors in Iran. The head of Rosatom said in articles that full-scale work on construction would begin in fall of 2015.
