Iran plans to triple its output of uranium enriched to 20 percent and to move this production from the Natanz enrichment plant to the Fordo (Fordow) site near the city of Qom, according to Vice President Fereidoun Abbasi. Fordo is located inside former ammunition depots and is protected by the Revolutionary Guards. According to Abbasi, the Fordo site will be equipped with more advanced centrifuges than the P-1 type used at Natanz.
