A 150-megawatt hydroelectric power plant was inaugurated on Thursday in the city of Behbahan, Khuzestan Province in southern Iran, in a ceremony attended by Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian.
Speaking on the sidelines of the inauguration ceremony, Mohammad Reza Shamsaei, director of Khuzestan Water and Power Authority, said the second phase of Maroun power station, located 19 kilometers from Behbahan, became operational at an estimated cost of $107 million, IRNA reported.
