Iran is the largest manufacturer in the Middle East of turbines used in power plants, said the head of the country’s main power plant construction company, adding that Iran is also among the 10 largest turbine producers in world, Iran Daily reported.

“Mapna company has manufactured 34 turbines under license from Siemens of Germany,“ Reza Shirazi told reporters, adding that the turbines were manufactured in four years and account for 5,500 megawatts, or 16%, of the country’s total power generation capacity.

He said the company will have manufactured 20 gas and steam turbines by March, adding that the new turbines will add 3,200 megawatts to the country’s power generation capacity.

The official further said that the capacity is expected to increase by 30% in the year to March 2008.

Shirazi said the Mapna is planning to build giant 250-300 megawatt power plant turbines through reverse engineering (RE).

Also speaking to reporters, Amir Massoud Amini, an advisor to the Mapna chief, said $30 mln will be invested in the generator manufacturing sector.

He said that Mapna has managed to save one mln euros on each generator manufactured domestically in the past seven years.

The official said the company has at hand 14 power plant projects with a total capacity of 9,191 megawatts. Amini further noted that the company has struck a deal with Siemens and the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways on manufacturing locomotives.

He said the company is also involved in oil, gas and petrochemical projects in the hydrocarbon-rich Asalouyeh area, south of Iran.
