Iran set to inaugurate two CCGT plants in Semnan
Iran is set to inaugurate two combined cycle power plants with the production capacity of 648 megawatts in the central Iranian province of Semnan.
Mohammad Reza Qalambor, the projects’ manager, said Shahid Bastami power plant in the city of Shahrood and Quds power plant in the city of Semnan would be inaugurated later on Tuesday.
Qalambor noted that the project comprises four 162-megawatt units, adding that nearly 19 million dollars have been invested in each of the plants.
In December, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad inaugurated the second phase of the largest combined cycle power plant in the Middle East in the northern Iranian city of Pakdasht.
Six steam units of Shohada-ye Pakdasht (Pakdasht Martyrs) plant, built with an investment of over two billion euros, were inaugurated by the Iranian president.
All the equipment of the Pakdasht plant’s steam units including turbines, generators and boilers have been made by Iranian experts, and the plant has 12 gas and six steam units.
