Tehran, Iran, July 30


Iran has saved up to €350,000 costs by implementing overhaul, preventive and maintenance projects in gas turbines, said the managing director of National Iranian Gas Transmission Company (NIGTC).

"NIGTC has operated all the overhaul projects with local contractors and by utilizing specific repair knowledge of the vibrating rotor in Siemens gas turbines," noted Saeed Tavakoli, Trend reports citing IRNA.

"The overhauling of temperature vibration of turbines in Jahrom Gas Power Plant was done by local companies, which saved €350,000 for each turbine," he added. "Some of them had problems due to vibrating temperature for years, and after the overhauling and testing their functions, the turbines are operational."

"Currently, there are around 295 turbines and engines in the country's gas network that are being operated through preventive maintenance (PM) and condition monitoring (CM) work," he said.

"By changing financial system, tax transaction and purchase methods at the warehouses of oil facilities, $42 million have been saved. We will continue to work with experts and scientists to achieve even bigger results by 2025," he added.
