Iran plans to inject virtual fuel into IR-40 by March 20, 2014

Monday, 10 June 2013

Iran Installed the main and upper container of Arak heavy water reactor (IR-40) in the central province of Markazi in the presence of President Ahmadinejad.  Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Fereidoun Abbasi Davani, has said that “Arak heavy water reactor will receive virtual fuel by March 20, 2014 (end of Iranian calendar year) …We hope that we can go through the relevant phases and carry out the necessary tests to make sure of the proper operation of this reactor and start its full launch next year… Construction of this reactor means that we can build a power reactor using light water reactors, which can yield a product.” Some Iranian media outlets described the event as a “Zionist nightmare.”
