The manager of Iran's only nuclear power plant- Bushehr Nuclear plant, has said it has been brought back online after two weeks off-grid. Mahmoud Jafari, the deputy head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said the "technical fault" that shut down the Bushehr plant and its 1,000-megawatt reactor has been fixed. The Russia-built plant was handed over to Iran in September 2013. The power generation at the plant has resumed.
