Iran Starts Designing Nuclear Submarine Engine
From The Hindu
Iran has commenced work on designing a nuclear submarine engine by pooling in elements of domestically developed technologies and using them for wider applications.
Senior naval commander, Rear Admiral Abbas Zamini, told the semi-official Fars News Agency (FNA) that the advances in civilian nuclear technology for use in power generation, agriculture and medicine had laid the foundations for the development of nuclear-fuelled submarines. “Since we have peaceful nuclear technology, we can put on the agenda the building of engine systems for nuclear submarines,” said Admiral Zamani.
