Medium-Scale Zahedan Power Plant: MAPNA Receives PAC for 2nd Gas Unit

MAPNA Power Plants Construction & Development Company (MD-1) received the Provisional Acceptance Certificate (PAC) for the second gas unit of the Zahedan Power Plant on November 26, 2023.

The gas section of the Zahedan Power Plant project features three MGT-40 gas turbines, each boasting a capacity of 42 MW, complemented by three generators and associated GTG auxiliary equipment. Additionally, the project involves the conversion of the previous unit to operate on diesel.

This accomplishment contributes to MD-1’s impressive track record, bringing the total number of provisionally delivered units to 149, with a cumulative capacity reaching 20,050 MW.

The plant is situated at km 10 of the Zahedan-Gurband road, opposite the water treatment plant in Sistan and Baluchestan Province.

The PAC for the first gas unit was previously issued on August 12, 2023.

Thermal Power Plants Holding Company (TPPH) is the client of the project, with Ghods Niroo Consultant Engineers Company serving as the client consultant.

This initiative is part of a larger contract inked between MAPNA Group and TPPH for the construction of seven medium-scale gas power plants. The comprehensive agreement, signed in December 2021, entrusted MAPNA with the responsibility of building gas units, each with a capacity of 42 MW, along with other essential systems and ancillary equipment. The ongoing construction spans 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).

MAPNA Group successfully brought this project to completion within a mere 10 months of signing the contract. 

The control system for the units, a critical component, has been meticulously designed and manufactured by MAPNA Electric & Control Engineering & Manufacturing (MECO).

MAPNA’s medium-scale power plants have the capability to generate offshore and off-grid power, presenting an economically viable solution for diverse industrial applications.
