Iran's National Grid Receives Electricity from Bushehr

Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Fereidoon Abbasi, said Monday the country's national grid received 940 megawatts electricity from Bushehr nuclear power plant, the semi-official ISNA news agency reported.

The nuclear electricity supply came following several experimental and standard tests related to power plant, Abbasi was quoted as saying without further elaboration.

Iran held a ceremony in September last year to mark the preliminary launch of the delayed Bushehr project.

The construction of the 1,000-megawatt nuclear power plant halted when the United States imposed a hi-tech embargo on Iran after the 1979 Islamic revolution.

Russia signed a contract with Iran in 1998 to complete the construction. But the project was postponed several times due to technical and financial challenges as well as pressure from the United States.
