Aliabad simple cycle power plant started a new phase of operation with MAPNA Group’s upgraded turbines.
Located in Golestan Province, northern Iran, the power plant had undergone a phase of rehabilitation and its V94.2 turbines were upgraded to MAP2B, MAPNA Group’s homegrown turbine.
Upgrading of the V94.2 turbines to MAP2B will increase the capacity of each unit by 21 megawatts and its efficiency by 2 percent.
Currently, there are 160 units of V92.2 turbines operating across Iran’s power generation network. Upgrading the turbines to MAP2B can increase the overall capacity of Iran’s power network by 3200 MWs.
Eight V94.2 turbines have been upgraded by MAPNA Group so far.
Minister of Power Reza Ardakanian who had attended the inauguration ceremony called on the parliament to set a real price for electricity price.
Ardakanian also called for speeding up the conversion of Aliabad simple cycle plant to combined cycle plant.
