Tavanir Says Power Plants Prioritize Efficiency

Increasing the efficiency of power plants is one of the priorities of the Energy Ministry as construction of new power plants is much more expensive than raising the efficiency of the current operating stations, managing director of Iran's Power Generation, Distribution and Transmission Company (Tavanir) said.
“By improving efficiency the rate of power wastage decreases,” ISNA quoted Mohammad Hassan Motevalizadeh as saying.
Boosting infrastructure, adopting modern power production technology and converting conventional plants into efficient combined-cycle units are among measures that the Energy Ministry has taken to enhance the efficiency of power stations and as a result, power loss in the network has reduced by 5% in the past years, the official added.
