The first steam unit of Assaluyeh Combined Cycle Power Plant with a capacity of 160 MW was inaugurated in a video conference with the presence of the President, the Minister of Energy and the Minister of Energy.

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 megawatts."

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."

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."
