Iran tells IAEA no quake damage found at Bushehr NPP

Iran informed the IAEA’s Incident and Emergency Centre on 28 November 2013 that no damage had been found at Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant, after a magnitude 5.7 earthquake hit an area some 65 km northeast of the plant at approximately 14:00 UTC. It said the plant, which was in operation at the time of the earthquake, continues to operate normally.

Based on this information, and the assessment of the IAEA’s International Seismic Safety Centre — which considers the earthquake’s magnitude and ground shaking, as well as its location — the IEC is not currently seeking additional information from Iran.
