4 Power Plants Operating on Greater Tunb

4 Power Plants Operating on Greater Tunb

Four small-scale power plants have become operational on Greater Tunb Island in the Persian Gulf, while plans are underway to improve Abu Musa Island's electricity system.
The four power plants have a total power generation capacity of 5 megawatts, Managing Director of Hormozgan Province's Electricity Distribution Company Abdolsaheb Arjomand said.
"State-of-the-art technologies were utilized for design, manufacturing and installation of the power plants," Arjomand was quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency.  
"Division of electric charges in the generators is conducted via a smart system, which significantly enhances the island's power stability," he said.
The project was implemented at a cost of $2.4 million. There are also plans to convert Abu Musa Island's electricity network into an earthing system in view of the island's high humidity and decaying cables. In electricity supply systems, an earthing system or grounding system is circuitry that connects parts of the electric circuit with the ground, thus defining the electric potential of the conductors relative to the Earth's surface.
