The promising prospect of Iran’s economy has opened new horizons for various industrial and economic sectors. Expected economic boom will trigger a rise in demand for energy. Along with this trend, privatization of the power industry in different sectors including generation, transmission, and distribution will continue, providing opportunities for the industry to become a totally competitive field in the future. The government’s decision in 2013 to establish an energy stock market is the latest of such attempts. The government’s decision in expected to turn Iran’s power market into one of the most attractive markets of the region through privatization, and facilitation and encouragement of investments.
In identifying investment opportunities inside and outside the country, MAPNA Group relies upon two strategic themes: management and expansion of investment in active and inactive fields; and establishing new financial institutions to boost investment in the Group
Collaboration with external investors is also another option that MAPNA takes into consideration. We assess the competence of our partners in terms of their financial credit, past records, and technical capabilities. Regular coordination meeting are held to meet demands or conditions set by partners.
As an active investor, MAPNA has acquired partnership of foreign and domestic investors in power plant, oil and gas and railroad transportation projects under BOT (Build, Own, Transfer), BOO (Build, Operate, Own) and other similar schemes. For instance, Germany’s IFIC Holding AG (IHAG) has been a MAPNA partner in building South Isfahan Power Plant. Other partners include Iran Power Plant Investment Company (SENA) in Aliabad Katoul Power Plant, and Ghadir Investment Company in both Behbehan Power Plant, and Qeshm Heat and Power Generation.
South Isfahan Power Plant is the first successful investment project in private power plant building that was commissioned in 2002 through an memorandum of understanding signed between MAPNA International FZE and Iran Power Development Organization under a BOT scheme, with MAPNA International FZE and Germany’s IFIC Holding AG (IHAG) as investors. The level of effectiveness of a partnership is regularly evaluated according to rules and regulations set by the Group.
A second partnership method is applied through the stock exchange market. Assaluyeh Project Company, a subsidiary of MAPNA, is currently presented in the OTC (over-the-counter). Given the lucrative nature of the partnership, MAPNA seeks a similar experience for other power plants.
MAPNA’s present and future projects include:
- 750 MW of wind farm projects;
