2013-04-11 11:48

Experts of Iranian Uranium Conversion Foundation (UCF) in Isfahan have created fuel rods for nuclear power plant in Bushehr, the RBC reported.


According to the deputy head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Mohammad Dzhanada Maraga, the work was carried out without any help from foreign countries. However, other details were not disclosed.

After Tehran failed to get the 20-percent enriched uranium for medical research, Iran itself started the process of uranium enrichment and successfully installed uranium rods of domestic production in the Tehran Research Reactor in February 2012. As noted Maraga, Iran enriches uranium to 20% to produce fuel for nuclear reactors.

The specialists of the UCF in Isfahan created fuel rods for the Tehran research reactor in Arak reactor IR40.

Meanwhile, as reported by the BBC, 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck in the south-western Iran near the Bushehr nuclear power plant. 12 villages completely destroyed, killing 37 people, more than 850 were injured. The main quake was followed by more than 80 aftershocks.

It is reported that the NPP itself was not damaged, and there is no security threat. Bushehr nuclear power plant is the only nuclear power in the country.
