Iran becomes self-sufficient in power plant construction

Tehran, May 5, IRNA - Iran’s heavy energy infrastructure giant MAPNA Group designed and produced all components of MGT40 gas turbine, making Iran self-sufficient in constructing power plants.

“Having produced this turbine, we are now self-sufficient in the power plants sector,” said MAPNA Group CEO Abbas Aliabadi on Sunday, adding it took the company seven years to complete its construction.

He added the group can now produce all kinds and ranges of power plants turbines.

The main components of the turbine include rotors, shells, turbine blades and compressors, all of which are designed, engineered, produced and supplied by MAPNA Group, as well as its generator and control system. The new domestically-produced product has helped the company save $40m. The group says it built the turbine to meet power demands of Iran’s oil & gas and petrochemical industries, particularly in the Persian Gulf region.

MGT-40 was installed in Zahedan power plant in southeast Iran in November 2018 and will be deployed in other power plants and energy sites across the country.
