Iran's engineering MAPNA Group has successfully indigenized an improved design of a highly efficient gas turbine for use in domestic and foreign power stations, an official in the energy enterprise said.
"The efficiency in the new turbine, known as MAP2B, has boosted by 2%, which means 20 million cubic meters less consumption of natural gas per year for every turbine," Morteza Nezamabadi was also quoted as saying by ISNA on Sunday. 
"MAP2B capacity has reached 185 megawatts, which is 28 MW more than the previous versions. Moreover, it helps reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, especially carbon dioxide, by as much as 40,000 tons," he said.
According to the official, the new version entails major redesign of the turbine’s main components, including new 3D blades and vanes, enhanced cooling and sealing, new base material and coatings, new 3D design for compressor blades, new design for journal-thrust bearing, new mechanical limit, as well as a new design for air filtration.
