Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 6
By Fatih Karimov - Trend:
An Iranian firm has established a power station for a refinery in the Omani capital Muscat, Saeed Marjooei, member of Iran Electrical Industry Syndicate (IEIS) said.
He said $100 million has been invested in the project, Iran's Mehr news agency reported on Jan. 6.
Marjooei did not provide details about the Iranian company or about the starting and ending dates of the project, but mentioned that the power station has a capacity to generate 52 megawatts of electricity.
Meanwhile, steam production facilities, water treatment plants, and fuel refining facilities have been built besides the power station, he noted.
The Iranian company has procured equipment and has implemented construction and installation operations.
Previously, Iranian Energy Minister Hamid Chitchian said that electricity, technical and engineering exports can replace oil exports for Iran. He said Iran is capable for building water treatment and power plants as well as large dams. So, the country can boost its share of technical and engineering exports in the Middle East, Africa, and Central Asia.
Iran can increase technical and engineering exports to $10 billion annually, he noted.
Iran exported some $600 million of technical and engineering services in the first eight months of the current fiscal year (March 21-November 21, 2014).
Iran's deputy energy minister Esmaeil Mahsouli said 30 Iranian companies are implementing 88 projects, valued at $4.357 billion, in 17 countries.
