Iran Nuke Reactor Hits Capacity

Iran’s Russian-built nuclear power plant in Bushehr hit capacity on Tuesday and was hooked into the country’s national power grid, according to Iranian officials.

“Two days ago, the necessary measures were taken and today the electricity generated by the nuclear power plant was transmitted into the circuit and 1,000MW of the electricity would enter the national grid tomorrow (Tuesday),” Behrouz Kamalvandi, the spokesman for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization (AEOI), announced Tuesday, according to reports in Iran’s state run press.

The Bushehr plant is running at full steam, producing 1,000 mega-watts of electricity following a successful refueling, according to Iran.
