2,400 Water, Wastewater, Power Projects Underway in Iran

Some 2,400 projects are underway in water, wastewater and power sectors across the country, which have progressed by 60% on average.
Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian made the statement on Thursday during his visit to the western Kurdestan Province to inaugurate a number of water and power projects, ISNA reported. 
“Some 15 trillion rials ($357 million) have been spent on the plans underway, which still need 13 trillion rials ($310 million) to become operational,” he said, adding that most of the projects are planned to go on stream until mid-2021 that marks the end of President Hassan Rouhani’s second term in office.
"As per the ministry’s comprehensive plan, 5,000 megawatts will be added to Iran’s total power generation capacity in the next fiscal year (starting March 21, 2019)."
