Hydropower Units Launched in Kermanshah Province

Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian inaugurated two units of Darian Power Plant near the city of Paveh in the western Kermanshah Province on Thursday.
According to ISNA, the two units of the hydropower plant, which have a combined power generation capacity of 140 megawatts, are planned to be linked to the national electricity grid after a month of trial operation.
Darian Power Plant, which has been constructed with over $56 million in investment over Darian Dam, has three 70 MW units that can produce at full capacity once it becomes fully operational.
The construction operations of Darian dam and power plant started about nine years ago, which has cost a total of $352 million so far. The dam can control 1,378 million cubic meters of water per annum.
Referring to Iran’s power production capacity of 80,000 MW, Ardakanian said the country plans to raise hydropower capacity.
