Gas to Reach Zanjan Power Plant in June

The project to install gas pipeline to feed natural gas to Aryan Power Plant in Zanjan Province will be completed by the end of June, managing director of Zanjan Gas Company said.
“With the completion of the project, about 90,000 cubic meters of gas per hour, equivalent to 2.160 million cubic meters of gas per day, will be supplied to the power station,” Rahim Soleimani-Nejad was also quoted as saying by the Oil Ministry’s news agency Shana.
With a total capacity of 546 megawatts, Aryan Power Plant has two 183 MW gas units and one 180 MW steam unit. 
Iranian engineers have provided the plant with E Class gas turbines. Over $300 million have been invested in the plant.
The gas units are ready and the steam unit, which is under construction, will become operational next year.
When the steam unit comes on stream, the total efficiency of the combined cycle plant will increase from 40% to 52%.
The power plant seeks to enhance electricity production in northwest Iran and responds to the growth of power consumption in the region.
With a population of over 1.1 million, Zanjan is a major tourist attraction. It has a highland climate characterized by extremely cold winters and warm summers. 
Average maximum temperature is around 27 degrees centigrade and average minimum temperature hovers around -19 degrees.
