Germany to build 4 solar power plants in Kerman

TEHRAN, Dec. 09 (MNA) – Iran and Germany have signed a new electricity agreement on building four solar power plants in the city of Kerman with a capacity of 40 megawatts.

After the signing of some Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) with German companies in order to build solar power stations in Tehran and Khuzestan provinces, a new contract has been inked to construct four new 40-megawat solar plants in the southeastern city of Kerman.

The agreement was reached after three days of negotiations in time with the trip of the German Ambassador to Iran along with Iranian government officials to Kerman.

According to the conducted studies, Kerman province enjoys 320 days of sunshine as well as wind tunnels in Reagan and Fahraj areas which mark a good opportunity for foreign investors to use the potentials of renewable energies.

The construction of the new solar plants is expected to begin one the international sanctioned against Iran are lifted.

Managing director of Tehran province Electricity Distribution Company Seyed Ali Barband had recently referred to the signing of a joint MoU with German investment companies adding “with the investment on the part of the Germans, the first 50-megawat solar power station will be established in Tehran and on the basis of the terms of the deal, the produced energy is guaranteed to be purchased from the investors at the approved price for a period of 20 years."

Moreover, an MoU had been signed earlier this year between Khuzestan’s Regional electricity Company and Germany's Green Energy 3000 GmbH to build the first phase of a 10-MW photovoltaic power plant in the southwestern Iranian city of Ahwaz.

Meanwhile, Iran’s Deputy Energy Minister Hoshang Falahatian had also pointed to the new round of talks between Iran and Germany stressing “new proposals for construction of power plants have been presented to German companies and new contracts will soon be signed.”
