The average efficiency of thermal power plants reached 38.58% last year (ended in March), which was 0.48% more than the year before, managing director of Iran's Thermal Power Plants Holding Company said.
Mohsen Tarztalab referred to conversion of gas-fired power plants into combined-cycle ones as one of the factors influencing the increase in the efficiency of thermal power stations, the Energy Ministry news website Paven reported.
Noting that the average efficiency of a combined-cycle power station is about 58%, he said the steam unit of some power plants will come online later this year to help increase output and efficiency.
Phasing out ageing power stations with low efficiency is another measure to be carried out by the TPPHC, Tarztalab said, hoping that by the end of the current year (March 2021), efficiency level would reach 39%.
