To convert gas-fueled simple cycle power plants of the country, and to increase power generation capacity and augment domestic capabilities to manufacture main equipment (e.g. turbine, generator, boiler etc.), Iran's Thermal Power Plants Holding Company, commissioned MAPNA Group with 22 conversion projects. The contract was signed in October 2009.
Jahrom Combined Cycle Power Plant was the last batch of this project, with an overall capacity of 3*160 MWs.
The original client of the project was the now defunct Iran Power Development Company, and Moshanir served as the consultant. As part of the privatization campaign, the Iranian Privatization Organization handed the project over to Jahrom Power Generation Company.
Following the handover, the new client, a consortium comprised of Sepah Bank, Tejarat Bank, Post Bank and Mellat Broker Company, signed a new contract with MAPNA Group.
The project is located 27 kilometers north of Jahrom, on the sidelines of Jahrom-Shiraz Road.
Three E-type steam turbines each with a capacity of 160 MWs and a 400-kv transmission substation were to be installed by MAPNA Group. Ghods Niroo Engineering Company serves as consultant of the project.
MAPNA Combined Cycle Power Plants Construction & Development (MD-2) Company, the executor of the project, received provisional acceptance certificate in December 2018.
