Iran Power Plant Repair Company carries out overhaul operations on power plants with about 10,000-12,000 megawatts of power production capacity per year, the company’s managing director said on Saturday.
“Iran has made such progress in the past few years that sanctions and threats from countries with modern technology will not impede Iranian power plants’ operations,” Einollah Salehi was also quoted as saying by ISNA on the sidelines of a visit by reporters to the company site.
Salehi added that two decades ago, even the installation of turbine blades was monopolized by foreign companies while Iran is currently self-sufficient in the construction of blades and compressors.
According to the official, since the past fiscal year (ended March 20, 2018), during which the import of steam turbine blades was banned by the Energy Ministry, about €15 million were saved in terms of costs.
Salehi noted that a major part of the overhaul of power plants in Iraq and a part of equipment repairs in Turkey are being carried out by Iran.
