The second consignment of fuel for Iran's sole nuclear power plant has been delivered from Russia to the southern Iranian city of Bushehr.

“This consignment was shipped, taking into account all safety measures and legal procedures, and has been transported to its designated area in the nuclear reactor,” Speaker of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Hamid Khadem-Qaemi said, according to a statement released by the organization on Wednesday.

Qaemi said the fuel, which has been prepared in advance for the reactor's second year of operation, was air couriered to Iran from Russia on three separate flights.

The reactor's first consignment of fuel weighed 86 tons and was delivered to the reactor in eight portions.

In October 2010, Iran started injecting fuel into the core of the reactor at the Bushehr nuclear power plant in the initial phase of its launch. However, engineers began removing the fuel rods in late February for safety reasons.

The unloading of the fuel delayed the plant's joining the national grid, initially scheduled for the beginning of 2011.

Bushehr, which is Iran's first nuclear power plant, operates under the full supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) has already announced that the facility is quake-proof and will never experience a situation similar to the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant
