Atomproekt starts Bushehr II

Atomproekt, the reactor design subsidiary of Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom, has announced the construction and installation work at the site of unit 2 of the Bushehr nuclear power plant in Iran. The first foundation stone for units 2 and 3 of the plant was laid in a ceremony held at the construction site in southern Iran in September last year.
During the ceremony held on 10th September, AtomStroyExport (ASE) and Nuclear Power Production and Development Company (NPPD) have signed a protocol on the start of work on the project to build units 2 and 3, known as Bushehr II.
Rosatom has said earlier that Bushehr II is expected to cost about $10 billion to build, and that the physical start-ups of unit 2 and unit 3 are planned for completion in October 2024 and April 2026, respectively. Provisional acceptance of unit 2 by the Iranian customer is scheduled for August 2025 and that for unit 3 in February 2027.
