Iran’s atomic chief: We need 20 uranium enrichment plants


Iran’s atomic chief Ali Akbar Salehi has said the country needs 20 uranium enrichment plants in order to meet all its electricity needs, state-owned English-language Press TV reported. Salehi told Press TV late Friday that the plants have to be equal in size to Iran’s existing flagship uranium enrichment plant in the central city of Natanz.

“We are in need of 20 thousand megawatts that means 20 times the amount (of fuel) the Natanz” facility can produce, Salehi said in an interview, adding that the Natanz site has a capacity of about 30 tonnes of enriched uranium per year.
