The 310-megawatt gas unit of the Dalahu Combined Cycle Power Plant, with an investment of 109 million euros, was put into operation today by order of the President.

According to Public Relations Office of TPPH Co., In order to develop electricity production in the west of the country, respond to the growth of consumption in the region and export electricity to neighboring countries, the construction of the Dalahu F-Class Combined Cycle Power Plant with an efficiency of 56% is on the agenda.

The Dalhou Combined Cycle Power Plant consists of two 310-megawatt gas units and a 293-megawatt steam unit with a total capacity of 913 megawatts. The second gas unit of the complex has been put into operation today and according to the plan, the steam unit of the power plant will enter the circuit in the spring of next year.

The implementation of the Dalahu Combined Cycle Power Plant project will create direct employment of 500 people and indirect employment of 5,000 people, and 90% of the total employment of the power plant will be the share of local employees in the region.

Dalahou Combined Cycle Power Plant is under construction with the investment of Farab Company at 60 km of Kermanshah-Islamabad road.

Emphasizing that 1,309 MW has been added to the capacity of the country's power plants since the beginning of the year, Minister of Energy said: "This year only, about 11,000 billion Tomans have been invested in the electricity generation sector."

He added: "This project is the ninth thermal power plant that this year after Tehran, Lorestan, Bushehr, Hormozgan, Mazandaran and Semnan provinces, this time in Dalahou city of Kermanshah province, the second unit of gas power plant with a capacity of 307 MW and investment of 2,530 billion Tomans is in operation and the first unit of which was opened in December last year."

He emphasized: "During the government of Wisdom and Hope, 40,000 billion Tomans have been invested annually in the electricity sector, some of which have been completed in the conditions of severe economic sanctions using public resources, including the government budget and private sector investment."

In this ceremony, The Deputy Minister of Energy for Electricity and Energy Affairs, emphasizing that more than two thousand megawatts of thermal power generation units will enter the circuit this year, said: "Today, with the opening of the second Dalahou gas unit, the capacity of power plants reached 84,000 megawatts."

Homayoun Haeri added: "The Dalahou Class F power plant with 56% efficiency and 913 MW capacity includes two 307 MW gas units and a 293 MW steam unit, which is being constructed by Farab Company as an investor in the form of a guaranteed electricity purchase contract."

Emphasizing that the 293-megawatt unit of the power plant steam section will enter the circuit before the peak of next summer, he continued: "the total resources allocated for this project is 365 million euros, equivalent to two thousand  and 530 billion Tomans, of which 220 million euros will be financed by the National Development Fund and € 145 million by the investor. Among the benefits of this plan will be the increase of the country's electricity generation capabilities, the development of industrial activities in the western region of the country, as well as the increase of the country's electricity export capacities."

Emphasizing that more than two thousand megawatts of thermal power generation units will enter the circuit this year, he added: "About one thousand megawatts of this capacity is related to the steam units of combined cycle power plants, which in the form of six steam units set a new record which will be registered in opening of these projects."

The Deputy Minister of Energy for Electricity and Energy Affairs, stating that these units will generate electricity without additional fuel consumption, said: "With the opening of these projects, 1.5 billion cubic meters of fuel consumption will be saved."

Haeri reminded: "Last year, the efficiency of the country's power plants reached 38.56% for the first time, and by the end of this year, the efficiency of thermal power plants will exceed 39%."
