Iran’s Thermal Power Plants Holding Company said it has  plans to phase out power plants with low efficiency (20%), and two ageing power stations in Tehran, namely Tarasht and Rey, could be the first to go, head of the company said.
“The plan is to first build a new power plant next to the old unit and shut it down gradually,” ILNA quoted Mohsen Tarztalab as saying.
Referring to the Rey Power Plant’s low efficiency, he said the facility is operating for more than four decades. The estimated useful life of an electricity plant is around 20 years.
