YEREVAN. Dec 3 (Interfax) – Armenia is making major efforts to improve protection of the country’s nuclear power plant in light of the increasing terrorist threat, President Robert Kocharian told the Security Council meeting on Tuesday.
Kocharian said. He regretted that the organization has not appropriated any finds for the plant in 2003.
At the meeting, it was reported that the plant, which has been operating at 84% of its capacity, generated 2,280 million kilowatt hours of energy in the first ten months of 2002.
Repairs at the plant will be completed within ten days. The second power unit, whose capacity is 400 MW, was stopped two months ago for routine maintenance and fueling.
