Iran’s largest wind farm, with a power generation capacity of 61.2 megawatts, was launched in Siyahpoosh region in Qazvin Province on Monday in a ceremony attended by Energy Minster Reza Ardakanian.  
Established across a 17-hectare area, the power plant features 18 modern turbines of 3.4 MW with a permanent magnet direct-drive system made by Germany's Siemens, Energy Ministry's news portal reported.
The construction of the wind farm was started by the private sector in 2016. The project, costing €86 million, has been financed by the National Development Fund of Iran, the country's sovereign-wealth fund.
The turbines, with hubs of 83.5 meters in height and rotors of 108-meter diameter, are unique in terms of generation capacity since ordinary turbines can only generate an average of 2.5 MW.
