In the first quarter of the current fiscal year (March 21-June 21), 93% of the fuel supplied to Shahid Rajaee Combined-Cycle Power Plant in Qazvin Province constituted natural gas, up from 88% last year, the managing director of the plant said.
“It consumed 2.6 billion cubic meters of gas, 230 million liters of diesel and 170 million liters of mazut,” Mehr News Agency also quoted Ali Farhour as saying.
“This year, diesel and mazut consumption declined to 7% and hazardous emissions have been minimized,” he added.
Last year, the plant’s diesel and mazut consumption amounted to 12% of the total fuel volume.
