MAPNA Group experts synchronized the third medium-scale gas unit of Zahedan Power Plant on January 21, 2023.
The synchronization comes five months after the first and second units were connected to the national grid.
This was part of a contract signed by MAPNA Group and Thermal Power Plants Holding Company (TPPH) to build seven medium-scale gas power plants.
As per the contract signed in December 2021, MAPNA was tasked with building the gas units each with a capacity of 42 MWs as well as other necessary systems and ancillary equipment.
Accordingly, medium-scale units are being constructed in Zahedan Power Plant, Morvarid Power Plant (Kish Island), Banglan (Jask) Power Plant (Hormozgan Province), Doroud Power Plant (Lorestan Province), Shush Power Plant (Khuzestan Province), and Khatam Power Plant (Yazd Province).
The conglomerate managed to complete the project some 10 months after the deal was signed.
The control system of the units has been designed and manufactured by MAPNA Electric & Control Engineering & Manufacturing (MECO).
The unit in Zahedan was the 188th unit synchronized by MAPNA Power Plant Construction and Development Company (MD-1) in its history and its tenth synchronized one this year (starting from March 21, 2022).
MAPNA’s medium-scale power plants have the ability to generate offshore and off-grid power and are economically suitable for various industries.
