The power plants will produce at least 1000 MW electric energy and will include water freshener.
Speaking to Al Alam channel on Monday, Behrooz Kamalvandi, Deputy Head of Iran Atomic Energy Organization , said that the power plants will be built next to the existing one in Bushehr.
"Trade considerations have been made. Technical considerations are also being accomplished. There are one or two legal points and I think that in the coming weeks we will reach the final result,” he said.
Kamalvandi asserted "We expect that within the current Christian year we will be able to sign the contract, protocol, and MoU and the various side contracts and to start the construction of the two power plants.”
Regarding the cost of the construction he said that negotiations are nearly over, adding that the power plants will be "pretty much like the existing one in Bushehr in technical terms, but with more complementary and modern additions as well as water freshener.”
He maintained that the water fresheners will help procure water for agriculture in the country’s southern areas.
He then added that it is expected that the building of the power plants will take from 5 to 7 years.
