Emergency shutdown reported at Iranian nuclear plant, officials say power facility offline for ‘technical overhaul’

An official from Iran’s state power company, Gholamali Rakhshanimehr, announced the shutdown on a talk show on Sunday, and told the public that it could result in power outages. Rakhshanimehr said that the plant was shut down on Saturday “for technical overhaul which will continue for a few days.”

Construction on the Bushehr plant began before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, was interrupted by the Iran-Iraq war, and finally completed with Russian assistance. The plant began supplying electricity in 2011, and has never been shut down since.
