Siemens delivers second F-class gas turbine to Iran

TEHRAN, November 12, 2017

Iran has taken delivery of the second F-class gas turbine from German engineering group Siemens for use at a 600-MW power station under construction in Bandar Abbas, a city in the country, said a report.

Based on the contract signed with Iran's energy and infrastructure conglomerate Mapna, the German group is to supply at least 20 gas turbines as well as associated generators over a period of five years, added the Iran Daily News report, citing Press TV.

The far-reaching agreement signed in March 2016 foresees the transfer of know-how for the F-class gas turbine technology to modernise the Iranian power supply system. It also includes a license for manufacturing F-class gas turbines in Iran.

The first of the two F-class gas turbines to be used at the Bandar Abbas power station was delivered in September 2016.

The contract covers not only the two SGT5-4000F gas turbines but also two SGen5-2000H generators and the associated power plant instrumentation and controls.

At the time, CEO of the Siemens Power and Gas Division Willi Meixner noted that with the delivery of the first gas turbine to Iran, his group was renewing its long-term partnership with Mapna to modernise and expand the country's power supply network.

Siemens' activities in Iran date back to 1868 and involve important infrastructure projects but the German industrial group suspended its cooperation with Iran in 2010 due to sanctions, added the report.
