The third steam unit of Parand Combined-Cycle Power Plant in south Tehran was connected to the national power network on Thursday, raising total production capacity to 83,800 megawatts, deputy minister of energy said.
"The new unit adds 160 MW to the national grid to support high demand in summer," Homayoun Haeri was quoted as saying by IRNA.
MAPNA Group, Iran's top engineering and energy conglomerate, constructed the $160 million plant in four years. The plant can now operate at full capacity.
According to the official, Parand Power Station, consisting of three steam units each of which is connected to two gas units, has a total capacity of 1,503 MW.
“The new (steam) unit has an efficiency rate of 50% and will help stabilize power supply to industrial units around the sprawling capital city.”
