Nuclear Sites

TABA Facility

The TABA facility, once known as the Iran Cutting Tools company, reportedly makes centrifuge components.  The exact type of components and number made remain uncertain.  In particular, it is unknown if this site has made the more sensitive rotating components of centrifuges. 

Iran stopped informing the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) about the locations of its gas centrifuge component manufacturing and assembly facilities in 2006.  In the past, Iran has utilized existing commercial and military industries to manufacture centrifuge components.  As such, it is plausible that the TABA facility makes centrifuge components for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) under contract.
