TEHRAN - Iranian engineers at Jemco company have succeeded in overhauling the giant electro motors at the country’s first nuclear power plant in Bushehr.
“Two years ago, we were able to overhaul the electric motors of Be’sat power plant in Tehran. And this year, the issue of overhauling Bushehr nuclear power plant’s electro motors was put forward,” CEO of Jemco company Mohammad Rostami said on Tuesday.
He noted that the electro motors at Bushehr nuclear power plant are Russia-made and their parts had been installed in the power plant by the Russians, and added, “In the past few years, it’s been the foreigners who have been overhauling the electro motors at Bushehr.”
Rostami explained that after officials decided to assign the project to overhaul the electro motors in Bushehr power plant to an Iranian company, a tender was held and Jemco company won the tender.
“The result was that the work was done well and the power plant has sent us a letter of consent,” he added.
