Iran’s heavy energy infrastructure giant MAPNA Group has designed and produced all components of MGT-40 gas turbine, a very essential machine in gas and oil industry, annoucing that the country is now self-sufficient in constructing power plants, IRNA reports. 

“Having produced this turbine, we are now self-sufficient in the power plants sector,” said MAPNA Group CEO Abbas Aliabadi on Sunday, adding it took the company seven years to complete its construction.

He added the group can now produce all kinds and ranges of turbines to be used in power plants across the country and abroad.  

The MGT-40 turbine is used for robust and reliable performance in a variety of applications ranging from simple and combined cycle power generation to mechanical drive applications where reliability and availability are of vital importance. 

The main components of the turbine include rotors, shells, turbine blades and compressors, all of which are designed, engineered, produced and supplied by MAPNA Group, as well as its generator and control system.

The new domestically-produced product has helped the company save $40m. The group says it built the turbine to meet power demands of Iran’s oil & gas and petrochemical industries, particularly in the Persian Gulf region. 

MGT-40 was installed in Zahedan power plant in southeast Iran in November 2018 and will be deployed in other power plants and energy sites across the country, according to the company. 

MAPNA is also active in building power plants in several Iran's neighbours Iraq and Syria. 

Back in 2018, Ali Reza Kolahi, Iran-Iraq Joint Chamber of Commerce Vice President, told Iran Chamber Newsroom that MAPNA-built plants in two Iraqi cities are already suppliying electricity to the Iraqi households.

MAPNA Group is also constructing a 540-MW in the Syrian Mediterranean city of Latakia to meet the Arab country's rising internal demand for electricity. 

The combined-cycle power plant is set to produce 540 megawatts of electricity. It’s located in al-Rasteen village, next to the 16 October Dam, according to the official Syrian news agency Sana.
