The Islamic Republic’s state enterprise, the Industrial Development and Renovation Organization of Iran, will be investing in setting up engine control units in Iran next year.

Established in 1967, IDRO Group is one of the largest companies in the country and one of the biggest conglomerates in Asia. It owns 117 subsidiaries both domestically and internationally.

According to IDRO’s director for innovative technologies, Sadeq Firouzmanesh, Iran does not have the technology for establishing ECUs, for which it intends to indigenize this technology, ISNA reported.

An ECU is a type of electronic control unit that powers a series of actuators on an internal combustion engine to ensure optimal engine performance.

Detailing the progress of projects, Firouzmanesh said a company had been set up for this purpose and the preliminary permits have been obtained.

“The executive phase of the project will become operational next year,” he said.

Detailing IDRO’s plans for the development of electronics and microelectronics, he stated that IDRO also plans to set up a power control laboratory for electronic auto parts.

Firouzmanesh noted that the company has obtained the preliminary permits for this project. He added that as there is no such laboratory in Iran, most electronic parts are taken to laboratories abroad for explosion and heat-resistance testing, which is a costly procedure.

“By setting up such a laboratory, other countries in the region would also be able to refer to Iran for testing their parts,” he said.
