The Ministry of Energy’s Strategic Plan has been developed by 1404 to increase the average power and power efficiency of Iranian power plants and has been based on studies.
In this regard, a retirement plan for low-efficiency old units has been considered. With the withdrawal of worn-out units from the grid and the construction of new units with high efficiency, production efficiency will increase, and this simultaneously reduces fuel consumption by producing equal power and thus reduces emissions from less fuel consumption.
Of course, there are also challenges that, according to Gholamreza Achaem, director general of the Office of Planning for the Manufacturing of Thermal Power Company, such extensive studies are related to various collections, including various departments of the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Oil, the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, and the lack of The existence of comprehensive databases in some companies or the lack of access to some information for various reasons is one of the main challenges of the project.
Meanwhile, Mohsen Tarz-Talib, the CEO of the thermal power company specialized in the issue of the status of worn out power plants, told ISNA: “Our plan is to eradicate an old and existing old power plant with the construction and operation of a new power plant, and according to The fact that the old power plants are not currently built will continue to operate.
According to him, according to the plans, four units of power plant will enter the production circuit before July, and after that, it will be possible to remove the worn out plant in the area.
Currently, there are 3,000 megawatts of worn out facilities throughout the country, which according to the estimates made it takes five years to replace these power plants. In addition, each new power plant that needs to be built needs $ 2 billion, which if this is to be provided The amount can be said goodbye to the squatters
