By Temkin Jafarov - Trend:

Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant was refueled.

The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi told IRNA on June 23 that the process of fueling the reactor was completed successfully.

Salehi said that the power plant connected to national power grid by 50 percent capacity on Tuesday morning again.

The 1000-MW Bushehr is Iran's only nuclear electricity plant which launched by Russia's Rosatom State Atomic Energy in early 2009 experimentally, but connected to the national power grid in 2011.

Salehi said that Bushehr's electricity power capacity would reach full capacity during next days.
