According to the Public Relations Office of TPPH Co.,
Mohsen-Tarztaleb, at the opening ceremony of the first steam unit of Assaluyeh
power plant, said: "The current capacity of this power plant, which
currently includes 6 gas units and one steam unit, is 1173 MW, which will be
completed in two years and the power plant's capacity will reach 1,500
The CEO TPPH Company added: "By constructing the
steam section, the savings made per unit are 250 million cubic meters per year,
which will lead to an increase in efficiency from 34% to 53%."
He pointed out: "The volume of investment made in
the steam unit is more than 2240 billion tomans, which has been concluded in
the form buyback
contract between the TPPH Company on behalf of the government and the Mapna
Group on behalf of the private sector."
Tarztalab added: "According to this type of
contract, the required capital will be provided by Mapna Group and the way of
returning the capital from the place of measuring the amount of saved fuel will
be returned to the investor for two years."
He pointed out: " In the
construction of the steam section of the combined cycle power plant, up to 70%
of domestic construction has been used and 30% has been dependent on the import
of raw materials from abroad."
By converting gas power plants to a combined cycle,
it is possible to increase 7500 MW of electricity without increasing fuel

gas consumption of the country was 35.5 percent, which is possible to reduce
the existing gas units by 15,000 MW to the combined cycle in both the public
and private sectors."
He added: "It is possible to increase the country's
electricity generation capacity by 7,500 megawatts without increasing fuel
consumption, and by doing this action, 12 billion cubic meters of fuel will be
saved per year."
He pointed out: "At present, the country's fuel
consumption is close to 63 billion cubic meters, and by converting gas units
into combined cycle, it is possible to produce 43 million tons of greenhouse
gases and increase the efficiency of the country's power plants by 4%."
He added: "Currently, 17 steam units of this type of
units in the country with a capacity of 3025 MW with an investment of 2.1
billion are under construction, of which 5 units have entered the country's
electricity circuit and 4 units have entered by the end of the year in the
country's electricity circuit."
