Two power plants planned to be built by Russia in the southern Iranian port city of Bushehr have been funded, according to Atomic Energy Organization of Iran spokesman Behrooz Kamalvandi.

“In the coming weeks we will try to hold the final talks and then soon after announce a date for starting the construction of the power plants,” he said, ISNA news agency reported August 28.

On the advantages of the first Iranian nuclear power plant that was built in the same location and commissioned in 2011, Kamalvandi said the power plant has helped Iran save on 27 million barrels of oil, prevent the formation of 15.7 million tons of pollutants, and yielded 17 million kilowatt hour of electricity.

On Iran’s heavy water sale, the official said currently European countries are the biggest customers of the product, adding that talks to sell heavy water to Russia are also almost final.

Russia has already built a power plant in Bushehr. The agreement for Bushehr nuclear power plant was finalized in 1995, but the project was delayed several times due to a number of technical and financial issues.

Bushehr- Iran's only nuclear power plant, which was inaugurated in September of 2013, has a capacity of producing 1,000 megawatts of electricity.
