Fars News 16 Feb 2010

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran announced on Tuesday that it has tested a new generation of centrifuges to promote the country’s nuclear fuel production capability.

“We have tested a new generation of centrifuges that is now in its final phases. Their capacity (to enrich uranium) is 5 times more than that of the existing centrifuges,” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said, speaking at a news conference with Iranian and foreign reporters here in Tehran today. “We will use them for (supplying) our power plants’ fuel in the near future,” the president went on to say.
