Major tests leading up to the commissioning of the Iranian Bushehr nuclear power plant have been successful over the past six months, plant chief Mahmoud Jarari said Thursday according to the Iranian state news agency.

Tests on 250 bar pressure, 110 bar pressure second-orbit, spherical metal with five load pressure, and a warm water test all passed.

“We are happy to witness that through endless efforts of the country’s scientists and experts we are on the verge of running Bushehr nuclear power plant,”  Bushehr Governor General Jahanbakhsh said.

"Nuclear energy is among Iran’s legitimate rights and we hope the power plant would be commissioned in the near future," he said.
