Germans clinch Iran’s biggest solar projects

Germans clinch Iran’s biggest solar projects

Iran’s Ministry of Energy has signed an agreement with a German company to build 1,250 megawatts of solar energy projects in the hydrocarbon-rich country’s latest move to green its energy supply chain. 


Without naming the foreign firm, Head of the Tehran’s Electricity Distribution Company Ali Barband said Monday under the deal, Germans will build several solar farms in Tehran, Tabriz and Isfahan as Iran embraces clean energy.

The plan for Tehran is to build 500 megawatts of solar projects, including 150 MW in Kahrizak, 200 MW in Varamin and 150 MW in Malard.

He told the Tasnim news agency a further capacity for 750 megawatts of photovoltaic energy will be installed in Central Isfahan and Northwestern Tabriz.

Barband said “It was decided that the issue of land acquisition for construction of the plants is determined soon, after which a 20-year agreement for guaranteed purchase of power will be signed with the Germans.” 

In August, Iran and Germany signed a document for generation of 100 megawatts of wind power plus 400 MW of solar in the southern Khuzestan Province.

German companies are reportedly about to begin building wind farms in Iran at a cost of $331 million next year.
