Iran Plans 100 MW PV Plant With Italian Help
  • A 100 MW solar power plant in Ira's Hormuzgan province is planned by the government
  • Hormuzgan's Governor Jasem Jadri has signed an agreement with unnamed  Italian company
  • Total investment of the solar power project will be around €140 million ($163.95 million)

Iran is planning to develop a 100 MW solar power plant with the help of an Italian firm. It will be the first solar power plant in the Iranian Southern province of Hormuzgan, according to Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

The Governor of Hormuzgan Jasem Jadri confirmed that his administration has signed a project agreement with an Italian company. However, he did not share the name or any other details about the Italian company.

The 100 MW facility will require an investment of €140 million ($163.95 million).

In August 2016, ABP International was planning a 100 MW solar power plant in Aran va Bidgol (see 100 MW Planned in Iran).

Iran's largest solar power plant of 10 MW capacity so far became operational in May 2017 (see 10 MW PV Plant Commissioned In Iran). In addition, Iran has two 7 MW projects in Hamedan up and running.

A third 7 MW system in Hamedan and a 20 MW PV power plant in Kerman "will be operating in the near future," said Iran's Ministry of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Organization (SATBA). Only in mid July, SATBA published that a ground-breaking ceremony took place for a 30 MW PV plant in the province of North Khorasan.
