Date: Unclear

Deal: Iran contracted ZiO-Podolsk to integrate equipment at the Bushehr nuclear power plant. According to a Russian news agency, the equipment had previously been supplied to Iran's Atomic Energy Agency by German firm Kraftwerk Union under a 1995 contract between Russia and Iran. In 2004, ZiO-Podolsk completed supplying the equipment at Bushehr, and as of March 2006, company specialists remained there to assemble it and attend to technical issues (RIA Novosti, March 7, 2006). In 2009, a Turkish news source stated that ZiO-Podolsk continued to supply Bushehr with equipment, though it is unclear whether the company is currently doing so (Turkish Weekly, March 20, 2009).

U.S. Business Ties: According to USASpending.gov, ZiO-Podolsk has not received any U.S. government funding, and the company does not appear to have any operations in the United States (USASpending.gov, accessed August 20, 2014).
