The conversion of Besat single-cycle power station in Asalouyeh in Bushehr Province to a combined-cycle facility was completed on Tuesday, the managing director of Pars Oil and Gas Company, a subsidiary of the National Iranian Oil Company, said.
“The first steam unit of the plant was connected to the national power grid and the power station’s efficiency reached 50%, up 25% compared to the time when it only ran on natural gas,” Mohammad Meshkinfam was also quoted as saying by IRNA.
Built over 3 hectares, the facility is equipped with three gas units, each of which has the capacity to generate 160 megawatts of power.
“The steam unit has added 175 megawatts of power to the national grid,” he added.
