Tehran, Iran, May 28
By Mehdi Sepahvand - Trend:
Iran has built its first mobile small-size power plant that can meet the power consumption of a town with 5,000 residents.
The power plant is meant for critical situations, such as in areas hit by natural disasters, as well as in remote settlements, said Ali Sarbaz Hosseini, manager of the company that had built the plant, IRNA news agency reported May 28.
Now Iran is the fourth country to build this type of power plant, preceded by the US, Germany and Russia.
Hosseini said the plant can tolerate earthquakes as strong as 7.5 on the Richter scale.
He added that the power plant costs only one fifth of its foreign-made samples, its making took less than six months and over 150 people worked to build it.
