Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant, located in Iran’s Bushehr province, has temporarily ceased its activity for repair and fuel replacement, Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, said.
According to the program, Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant has been recently shut down for about two months, Kamalvandi added, Trend reports referring to Iran’s iranenergy website.
Kamalvandi added that this work was carried out in coordination with the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization and the Energy Ministry.
