The first unit of Sardasht Hydroelectric Power Plant in Sardasht County, West Azarbaijan Province, will go on stream by the weekend, the managing director of Iran Water and Power Resources Development Company said on Monday.
Sardasht Dam, constructed on Little Zab River began taking in water in June 2017. Now after two years, the power plant adjacent to it is set to become operational. “The first unit has a production capacity of 50 megawatts and the other two units will be launched by the end of August,” ISNA quoted Behrouz Moradi as saying.
When fully operational, the hydroelectric power station will have an installed capacity of 150 MW and is expected to generate 421 gigawatt-hours of electricity annually.
