Close to 3,000 megawatts in new power capacity will be added to the national grid to meet the electricity peak in summer, the managing director of Iran’s Thermal Power Plants Holding Company said.
“About 2,000 MW of the plan are already in place and the remaining 1,000 MW will be synchronized with the network before summer demand hikes," Mohsen Tarztalab was also quoted as saying by the Energy Ministry's news portal.
"The steam units in Kashan power station in Isfahan province, Jahrom plant in Fars Province and Parand power plant, 30 kilometers southwest of Tehran, as well as the gas-powered units of Caspian power station in Mazandaran Province  and Hormoz plant in Hormozgan Province will go on stream to help TPPHC fulfill its plan."
