Iranian province planning 1,350 MW of hydroelectric expansions

SANANDAJ, Kurdistan Province, Iran 6/7/12 (PennWell) – The Iranian province of Kurdistan is planning five hydropower projects that would have a total combined generating capacity of 1,305 MW, the regional government's Ministry of Electricity announces.

Speaking at a conference in Istanbul earlier this week, Minister Kamal Salih said the plans include a 621-MW hydropower plant at Mandaw, a 350-MW plant at Taq Taq, and a 261-MW plant at Rashawa.

In addition, the ministry says it is planning two smaller run-of-river plants, including a 40 MW facility at Khawalesh and a 30 MW facility at Dereluk.

A timetable for completion of the projects wasn't announced, although hydroelectric development seems to be a priority for the country.

In January, HydroWorld.com reported that Iran's Ministry of Energy had issued US$240 million in bonds to finance hydropower projects and that the country expects the export of power to account for a billion dollars by the end of the year.
