Iran starts developing shipboard nuclear reactor

23
Iranian industry in the near future will begin to design the ship's nuclear reactor, writes Defense Talk. The authorities of the Middle Eastern state have already notified the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) of plans to develop reactors that can be installed on surface and submarine ships.


Iran starts developing shipboard nuclear reactor

The submarine "Tarek" project 877EKM Iranian Navy


Since the end of 1980, Iran has been operating an updated nuclear program to create a complete chain of the nuclear cycle - from fuel processing and enrichment plants to nuclear power plants. Iran currently has eight nuclear facilities, including the Bushehr nuclear power plant and the Fordot fuel enrichment plant.

In 2015, Iran and the countries of the so-called "six" signed an agreement to control the Iranian nuclear program in exchange for the gradual lifting of international sanctions against Tehran. The Treaty, in particular, provides for the admission of IAEA specialists to nuclear facilities and a ban on the production of highly enriched uranium.

Iran sent a notification of its intention to develop a nuclear-powered nuclear reactor back to the IAEA as early as January of this year, but the agency disclosed this information just now. The agency said that with this development, Iran does not violate the 2015 agreement of the year. In accordance with international rules, by the middle of May 2018, Iran should disclose details about the promising reactor design, the scientific portal N + 1 reports.

    A proverb in the subject: “Old tradition, but hard to believe. In the near and distant time, the Persians can’t do it. Rather, they will tear Israel’s tail than make a nuclear submarine reactor or surface ship.

      Why? There is experience in creating nuclear reactors. Information on the main mistakes of other countries when creating ship nuclear reactors is known. He is quite capable. Another thing is that the squeal of the Americans, Saudis and Israel can raise, they do not need a developing Iran.

    So soon they will begin to build a nuclear submarine, and you look at the Eun submarine will appear ..

    Read: lick the Soviet. I do not believe in the technical genius of the eastern nations. They have everything licked and modified in our breed. Even the notorious Japanese and Korean came out of the northern and western brains.

    Russia among them. It’s not worth it to think over your own options.

    I think it’s possible. That's just what fuel (in percentage terms) they will make such a reactor. And which is technically and technologically simpler - a low-enriched or highly enriched fuel reactor. The only plus is that such a reactor will not be heavy water, that is, one on which plutonium can be produced. On transport reactors this is not done

    Of course of course. It is so good that another nuclear state will appear near us (in the underbelly) (there are not three of us near our borders), but this time Muslim. Not by our side, but by our side. But does it really matter? After all, the main thing is that it will be against the Americans. The truth is so far against the Americans (what will happen in the future - no one knows). But it was already that there was a pro-American leadership. So this is nonsense. The main thing is to wish them success. They already have missiles reaching Moscow, now they want to quickly wish to get a nuclear club. So that they overcome those former Soviet republics that have always been in the zone of our interests.
    After how many decades, Iran will have an ICBM capable of reaching the United States - is unknown. But here are the neighbors, including and we have enough of what they have ...

    Now the neighboring state, under the star of David, promises to bomb Iranian shipyards in order to prevent them from building such a boat! In general, for starters, Iran needs to act like India, taking our nuclear submarine for rent! To understand on it what they will deal with when they build their own atomarina.

    Iran did not build a corvette anymore, where should they stick a reactor? And with whom to fight in the Strait of Hormoon? No shipyards, no moorings. Duck.

    Yes, we have so many extra nuclear boats that we can only rent and rent. Already offering to hand over a couple of North Korea, now Iran. I don’t care that we ourselves will remain without boats, but how can we not help friends ....

    Well, in addition to warships, there are also civilian vessels. It can do and run in some kind of transport. After all, the main thing to do, and where to put it later - they will find

    we’re waiting for 2020 for good reason ours support Iran in everything, and a recent resolution at the UN, military contracts will probably be grandiose soon, Iran needs to completely renew its air force, our MiG-35s just fit

    Has everyone forgotten about the features of small-sized submarine reactors? Fuel for them is highly enriched! Much more than for conventional VVR-s. The cunning Persians will "aggravate" all laughing

    So most likely the ship’s reactor is already available. Sewed in the lower hemispheres to Americans. The next logical step is the construction, or modernization of existing, multipurpose submarines.

    You seem to wish you wishful thinking. What support is in the UN resolution? Do you even know when the Security Council last adopted a resolution on Iran?

    Or does the forced contract that we were forced to fulfill on the delivery of the S-300 to Iran seem to be the forerunner of grandiose contracts? Well, if they are such “best friends and closest allies” that we were allowed to shoot through our territory just a couple of times and use the air base once, like a jump airfield? Why didn’t they give us permission to create there, albeit a temporary, but air base?

    Or do you think that if Iran’s policy is anti-American, that’s all - it means he’s our best friend and so we need to immediately build billions there?

    MIGi-35s are primarily suitable for us, we need to update our fleet. In our system, the Migov-29 cat wept, less than a hundred and a half, plus the same amount in storage. Do you offer news to your neighbors? Double standards are obtained. So S-400 can not be sold to Turks and Saud, they say new. But to sell MIG-35 to the Persians is not only possible, but also NECESSARY?

    Comrad. Nowhere in the note does it say that they are going to make a small-sized reactor. Although I agree with the enrichment, HEU is required

    Quote: shinobi
    Yes, but it’s not enough for weapons.

    Not enough. But it all depends on what degree of enrichment is needed. If over 20%, then it won’t work. It is under control and should be "distributed" up to 3,75% under the agreement "Iran + 6" or how else else this agreement is called "1 + 6" or the JCPOA (joint comprehensive plan of action)

    Quote: shinobi

    This does not mean anything yet. Since 2015, when the JCPOA was signed, control over this is quite tough. If the reactor would be ready, it would be known
