Mashhad Power Plant Efficiency to Increase Mashhad Power Plant Efficiency to Increase

The efficiency of Ferdowsi Power Plant in Mashhad, Khorasan Razavi Province, will rise by 17% when the plan to convert the plant’s system to combined-cycle is implemented, the project’s manager said. 
“The plan calls for adding three steam units [to operational gas units] to complete the cycle and raise efficiency to 50% from the current 33%,”Mohammad Reza Qasemi was also quoted as saying by ILNA on Sunday.
A combined-cycle power plant produces up to 50% more electricity from the same fuel than a traditional simple-cycle power plant. This is because waste heat from a gas turbine is routed to the nearby steam turbine, which generates extra power.
