The 400 KV substation (GIS) of the Iran LNG Power Plant was successfully powered up and delivered to the national grid and the South Pars Gas Complex on June 11, 2023.
This was done after testing and setting up the 230 to 400 KV transformer and synchronizing it with the 315 MVA transformer of the air post, with a license from the national dispatching center.
The operation was carried out by Neyr Perse staff with the support of Iran Liquefied Natural Gas Co. in the presence of one of the advisors to Iran’s energy minister.
The gas unit of the Iran LNG combined cycle power plant involved the collaboration of Neyr Perse, MAPNA Turbine Engineering and Manufacturing Company (TUGA), MAPNA Electric & Control Engineering & Manufacturing Company (MECO), MAPNA Generator Engineering and Manufacturing Co. (PARS), MAPNA Operation and Maintenance Company (O&M Co), Nasb Niroo and Parsian Post Company.
This connection will enable the injection of power from five gas units of the LNG power plant into the grid and increase the previous power transmission capacity by 400 MVA.
Located in Pars Special Economic Energy Zone in Bushehr Province, south of Iran, Iran LNG Combined Cycle Power Plant has five gas and two steam units with a total capacity of 1130 Megawatts.
In a ceremony back in September 2022, 3rd, 4th, and 5th gas units of the plant were officially inaugurated. The power plant is active with the efforts of several companies affiliated with the MAPNA Group, including Neyr Perse, MAPNA Operation & Maintenance Company, MAPNA Turbine Engineering, and Manufacturing Company (TUGA), MAPNA Electric & Control Engineering & Manufacturing Company (MECO), and MAPNA Generator Engineering & Manufacturing co. (PARS).
