Construction of a solar section of Yazd Integrated Solar Combined Cycle Power Plant started Saturday.
Upon completion the plant will have generation capacity of 467 megawatts, the Energy Ministry reported.
An ISCC is a hybrid technology in which a solar thermal field is integrated within a combined cycle plant. In ISCC plants, solar energy is used as auxiliary heat supplier, supporting the steam cycle, which results in increased generation capacity or a reduction of fossil fuel use.
The unit in the central province is now generating electricity through two 159 MW gas units and a 132 MW steam unit. The solar section will add 17 MW to the output.
