Iran is building three new power plants, two of which are nuclear, in cooperation with Russian experts, Iran's energy minister said.
"We have two active projects in cooperation with Russia. One of them is the project whose contract has been signed between the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) and Russia which includes the construction of two 1,000-MW nuclear power plants,” Hamid Chitchian said.
"Another active project is also underway between the Energy Ministry and Moscow to construct a 1,400-MW power plant in Hormuzgan Province near the Persian Gulf."
The construction work of the power plant has already started, he added.
