Sistan Floating Solar Power Plant Under Construction

Operations to build a 7-megawatt floating solar farm in the southeastern city of Zehak, Sistan-Baluchestan Province, started on Monday. 
Mandana Zanganeh, the head of the provincial department for attracting investment in Sistan-Baluchestan, said the renewable venture, worth €8.5 million ($10.1 million), will be carried out by domestic experts, ISNA reported.
"The floating photovoltaic farm is to be installed on 14 hectares of Chah-Nimeh water reservoirs," she added.
Referring to the critical environmental condition of the underdeveloped province, the official noted that besides generating electricity, such projects can greatly help prevent water evaporation.
Chah-Nimeh reservoirs are three natural and big cavities in the south of Sistan Plain 50 kilometers from Zabol. Surplus water from Hirmand River flows into them through a canal. These reservoirs, with a capacity of 700 million cubic meters, equal roughly one-seventh of Hamoun Wetland.  
However, 355 million cubic meters evaporate annually from the reservoirs.
