Despite delays while the Russian builders of Iran’s controversial nuclear Bushehr plant removed fuel rods for further testing, official from the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee have announced that it will be connected to the grid within three months.

“According to the latest reports, the first stages of connecting the Bushehr nuclear power plant to the national electricity network will begin in late April, and the plant will be fully connected to the grid in midsummer,” said MP Kazem Jalali in a report by the Tehran Times.

When connected to the nation’s grid, the plant will initially produce 400 megawatts of electricity, reaching its full capacity of 1,000 megawatts two to three months later.
