Tehran Regional Electricity Company has planned to hold a tender to develop 167 substations in the capital city, the head of the company said on Monday.
"The international tender that will be issued soon is aimed at selecting qualified local and foreign contractors to boost the metropolitan's power infrastructure," Gholamreza Khoshkholq was also quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency on Monday.
The official noted that as per the law, contractors are obliged to procure 80% of their equipment from domestic manufacturers, so the more they purchase local products, the bigger their chances of winning the tender.
According to Khoshkholq, the plan is part of a bigger scheme to establish 312 substations across Tehran, of which 135 projects have been commissioned through tenders.
