Iran’s first nuclear power plant comes on-line

August 14, 2011 TEHRAN – “The test to reach 40 percent of the plant’s power capacity has been done successfully… God willing, we will be able to commission the plant by the end of Ramadan with an initial production” of the same amount, Abbasi Davani said. He estimated that the plant would reach its “full capacity of 1,000 megawatts” in late November or early December. “We will then organise an official ceremony, for which it has been suggested that Russian President Dmitry Medvedev come to Iran,” he said. The connection of the Bushehr plant in southern Iran to the national grid, originally scheduled for the end of 2010, has been delayed several times because of technical problems. The plant was started up in November 2010 but repeated technical problems delayed its operation, leading to the removal of its fuel in March. Russia has blamed the delays on Iran for forcing its engineers to work with outdated parts in the facility, while the latest delay in March was pinned on wear and tear at the plant. Construction of the plant started in the 1970s with the help of German company Siemens, which quit the project after the 1979 Islamic revolution over concerns about nuclear proliferation. In 1994, Russia agreed to complete the plant and provide fuel for it, with the supply deal committing Iran to returning the spent fuel, amid Western concerns over the Islamic republic’s controversial uranium enrichment program. Abbasi Davani’s remarks come on the eve of a scheduled visit by Security Council of Russia’s secretary Nikolai Patrushev, who will hold talks with his Iranian counterpart Saeed Jalili and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Tehran. Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi will go to Moscow amid Russian efforts to revive talks between Tehran and world powers on Iran’s nuclear program. –Physics.org
Security to increase: Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi announced last week that the regime will increase security around its research staff, according to the Iranian news agency. This is said to be a first step in a series of measures to protect Iran’s nuclear scientists. The announcement is a first indicator that the regime is concerned about the fact that four key individuals involved in the development of the Iranian military’s nuclear program were assassinated over the past two years, Yedioth Ahronoth reported on Sunday.  The latest incident occurred on July 23, when Darioush Rezaei, who was identified by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as a physicist working on the development of components used in nuclear weapon systems, was shot dead by a motorcyclist in Tehran.  –Ynet

    Alvin-

    Just finished your chapter in the book on Iran being the trip-wire for war in the Middle East. This is pretty much falling in line with your thoughts. It is almost surreal – seeing the path, watching the participants going down the path – I feel like I am doing a silent scream on some days. Other days, I am amazed that the whole world isn’t wide awake as we march toward . . the next phase. Thanks for all you do, Alvin. I so appreciate you!

    Peace – Julie

      Julie – Maybe they don’t notice, because they are too busy watching the stock market tank and worrying about their 401K’s.

      At the rate that current events are unfolding, I say that folks should quit worrying or giving a damn about their 401K’s, because those may not matter much in the end, anyways. 😐

    Third Adam: Let me echo the words of Lindsey: Don’t be so harsh on Israel.
    If Israel had not struck the Nuclear reactors in Iraq, Hussien would had nuclear weapons before Iran, used them on Iran or our troops in the 1991 war.
