Iranian Scientists Mass-Produce Gas Micro Turbines for Generation of Electricity

TEHRAN (FNA)- A group of Iranian researchers at Kashan University succeeded in the mass-production of gas micro turbines which can generate electricity and heat concurrently.

The micro turbines which can only be manufactured by 10 countries in the world are applied in the generation of electricity and heat at homes and commercial, industrial and strategic centers in Iran.

Mass-production of such micro turbines with the aforesaid features has been carried out for the first time in the world and the full cycle of designing, development, sample production, obtaining the necessary standards and final production were all completed by Iranian scientists.

Samples of the micro turbines produced in Iran have been exported to Russia, Italy and Britain so far.

Iran has taken wide strides in science and technology fields in recent years.

Iranian researchers built a new gas turbine with high power and efficiency in 2018, and launched it domestically and in Iraq.

"The gas turbine, B2MAP, has been fully produced and launched in an Iranian engineering company," Morteza Nezamabadi, one of the designers of the turbine, told FNA at the time.

He added that the new gas turbine works with 185 mega power with the efficiency of 36.4.

"The turbines have been used in projects to build power plants in Iraq as well as the Iranian towns of Aliabad and Assalouyeh," Nezamabadi said.

Iran unveiled the first home-made 25-megawatt wind turbine generator in Karaj city, near Tehran, in 2015.

The 25-MW wind turbine generator was unveiled in a ceremony attended by Iranian First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri.

The new generator has been manufactured by Iranian experts at MAPNA.
