Speaking on the sidelines of signing an agreement in Tehran, Aliabadi noted that gas turbines are used in planes, ships, and power production, adding that gas turbines are among the most important man-made objects
Iran proudly announces that it owns the technology to make different kinds of them, he said.
He went on to say that Iran has devised the MGT75, which will improve the efficiency of power plans up to 60 percent.
The newly-designed turbine can combust hydrogen and emit water steam, instead of greenhouse gases, he said, adding that the product is totally Iranian and cheaper than the foreign models.
He also said that it is going to be presented in the world market, and it will definitely be welcomed.
Aliabadi added that the consumption of water in the new power plant will drop to 1/10 of the older ones.
MAPNA Group and Thermal Power Plants Holding Company (TPPH), a sub-set of Energy Ministry, Saturday signed an agreement for design installation and the launch of national turbine MGT-75.
Aliabadi further noted that the MGT-75 turbine has been designed according to the requirements of the country’s power network and can be used for the development of the network in the future.
The MGT-75 turbine has improved efficiency by 60 percent over the previous designs and increased output capacity to 220 megawatts, he noted.
This turbine will impose the least fluctuation on the electricity network while improving the efficiency of the country’s thermal power plants, according to the head of MAPNA Group.
The first Iranian-made MGT-75 gas turbine is going to be installed in a thermal power plant in the capital Tehran.
As Iran’s top engineering and energy enterprise, MAPNA had previously manufactured E-class and F-class turbines such as MGT-70.
According to the agreement, the turbine is to be designed and installed at the Besat power plant in southern Tehran. The turbine will boost power generation as well as reducing fuel consumption.
