Buildings housing pumping facilities and the 400-kilovolt power station of Bushehr nuclear power plant will become operational on Tuesday, March 13.

Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Gholam-Reza Aqazadeh will be present at the inaugural ceremony.

Bushehr nuclear power plant is the first nuclear facility of its type in Iran to be built by a Russian company (since January 8, 1995).

It will run on nuclear fuel.

Based on an agreement, reached between Iran and Russia in September 2006, the first phase of the power plant will be operational in September 2007.

The power plant will be fully operational in December 2007 and just three months after the operation, nuclear power will be supplied from the national energy cycle.
