TEHRAN – The Iranian Mines and Mining Industries Development and Renovation Organization started on Wednesday the construction of a 100MW solar power plant for Chadormalu mine in Yazd, central Iran.
The ground-breaking ceremony was held with Mohammadreza Movassaqinia, chairman of the board of IMIDRO, in attendance.
The power plant will be established on 150 hectares of land in Ashkezar County.
Some €60 million has been invested in the project which will generate more than 190 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year.
The power plant is scheduled to be constructed within 16 months and will run for three months in trial operation.
One of the environmental benefits of implementing this project is to reduce the production of 115 thousand tons of greenhouse gas per year.
During the construction period, the project will create 400 direct and 250 indirect jobs.
