By the end of the current year (March 2021), the efficiency of thermal power plants will increase by 1% to reach 39%, managing director of Iran's Thermal Power Plants Holding Company said.
“This year, nine steam units with a capacity of 1,454 megawatts will come on stream,” ILNA quoted Mohsen Tarztalab as saying.
Moreover, construction of three F-class gas turbines with 58% efficiency, will also be completed, which will help raise the average power plant efficiency in Iran, he added.
The modern turbines consume less gas and are more eco-friendly. Electricity generation in a simple-cycle and combined-cycle power plant rises by 40% and 59%, respectively, with the help of the F-class turbines.
