Thermal power stations generate 300m MWh in 10 months: Official

The electricity generation of Iran’s thermal power plants reached 300 million megawatt/hour in the first 10 months of the current Iranian year (started March 21, 2023), announced the deputy head of Thermal Power Plants Holding Company (TPPH) for strategic affairs.
Iran’s generation of electricity from the thermal power plants between March 21 and December 22, 2023 registered a three-percent hike compared to the same period a year earlier, Nasser Eskandari stated, according to IRNA.
In addition to meeting the electricity demands in the power grid of the country, thermal power plants have played a leading role in providing sustainable energy for subscribers nationwide, he added.
Of the total electricity generated, over 53 percent pertains to the combined-cycle power plant units, he said, putting the electricity generated by the combined-cycle power plant units in the country from March 21 to December 22, 2023 at 163 million MWh, showing an about four percent rise compared to the same period in 2022.
Converting gas-fired power plants to the combined cycle power plants is one of the most efficient methods to improve the efficiency of the thermal power plants in the country, Eskandari added.
