Iran Begins Fueling of Bushehr Nuclear Plant

It is the first civilian nuclear power plant built in the Middle East.

Nuclear fuel is being transferred to the Bushehr reactor, Iranian Press TV reports. According to the report, the fueling is being done under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency and senior officials from Iran and Russia.

bushehr_area_4-sThe Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant is located 10.5 miles southeast of the city of Bushehr, between the fishing villages of Halileh and Bandargeh along the Persian Gulf.

The Russian-completed plant is “finally” being launched after years of delay, and 163 fuel rods are to be transferred to the core of the plant. It is the first civilian nuclear power plant built in the Middle East. Several “research” reactors had been built earlier in the Middle East: two in Iraq, two in Israel, one in Syria and three in Iran.

Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) head Ali Akbar Salehi and Russian Federal Atomic Energy Agency Director Sergei Kiriyenko held talks earlier on Saturday, ahead of the inaugural ceremony of the Bushehr nuclear power plant.

Iran’s AEOI chief said the fueling process will be completed by September 5.

Kiriyenko praised the “physical launch process” of the plant, saying, “Bushehr plant is a unique power plant, as most of its parts and equipment have been installed on the ones mounted by the Germans.”

He expressed satisfaction with Russia’s commitment to its part of the deal and noted, “This is an important event. We declare that Russia has stood by all its commitments to the Bushehr nuclear power plant.”

Iranian officials say they expect to use nuclear-generated electricity two or three months following the fuel launch of the plant.

The reactor’s construction was resumed by Russia in 1995, after the German contractor withdrew from the project soon after the 1979 Islamic Revolution in the country.

One Response to “Iran Begins Fueling of Bushehr Nuclear Plant”

  1. The question now is how long will it take to remove ALL the chemical weapons in Syria? Another important question is that while we try to do that will some other event in the middle east trigger a bigger war before the chemical weapons are removed? Also linked to the Syrian war is Iran. The agreement with Iran makes it clear that Iran will continue to enrich uranium, and I doubt that Israel can actually take such a big chance. With all of this volatility if anything should go wrong the war written about in Isaiah 17 may take place. Many will die on both sides and Damascus Syria would be destroyed. I believe the movement for a 1 world government would then kick into high gear. We all know about the pressure for a 1 world currency and for world peace; now the Pope is even a proponent for a new economic system. A new world order is just a matter of time. In July of 2012 I wrote a small booklet that talks about some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events.
