“The launch of the steam unit mark the completion of Genaveh power plant,” Mahdi Khabaz Pisheh was quoted as saying by IRNA.        

The official noted that the 484 MW power plant, which cost $313 million to build, comprises of two gas units as well as a steam unit. The project was developed by the MAPNA Group based on a build-own-operate contract.

Commenting on the gas units with total capacity of 324 MW, Khabaz Pisheh added, “The gas units became operational in 2013.”

The power plant in southwest Bushehr Province helped develop regional industries and created much-needed jobs. It supplies electricity to the national power network via a 230-kilovolt power transmission station.

A combined-cycle power plant, or CCPP, uses both gas and steam turbines to produce up to 50% more electricity from the same fuel input than a traditional plant. According to the official, there are plans to build several steam power plants with a total production capacity of 17,000 MW.
