Thermal Power Plants Holding Company has plans to indigenize almost 80% of equipment for power plants, director general of the Technology and Indigenization of Power Plants Office at the TPPHC said.
"So far contracts worth $23 million have been signed with domestic manufacturers and knowledge-based companies to produce parts for power stations," Ali Isapour was quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency.
“Importing the parts would cost at least $38 million.”
