Most of the equipment used in thermal power plants has been indigenized, deputy of the strategic production department at the Thermal Power Plant Holding Company said Sunday.
Temperature at a steam unit rises up to 565 degrees centigrade but can get as hot as 1,260 degrees. “Equipment and parts that can withstand such high temperature obviously are sensitive. We have succeeded in making the parts with help from our universities and the Energy Research Institute,” IRNA quoted Abdolrasoul Pishahang as saying.
Local companies annually manufacture about 1,000 components used in power plants and their quality is approved by the Institute of Standards and Industrial Research of Iran.
