Iran will install an initial serious of centrifuges "soon" at the Fordo nuclear facility near Qom in central Iran, Bloomberg cited Iranian Vice President Fereydoun Abbasi as saying Wednesday.

Fordo is the country's second site for uranium enrichment.

According to Bloomberg, Iranian officials said the site at Fordom has a maximum enrichment capacity of five percent, and is not an "industrial scale unit.

Long kept secret, the plant was disclosed in September 2009. Iranian officials maintain that their nuclear program is for civilian use only, a claim which many countries, including the US and Israel, find suspect.
