Bandar Abbas power station is a proposed 1,400-megawatt (MW) gas-fired power station in Hormuzgan Province, Iran.
The map below shows Bandar Abbas, the approximate location where the plant would be built.
Background on Plant
In August 2016 Reuters reported the 1,400 MW plant would be coal-fired and built by Tekhnopromexport, part of Russia's state industrial conglomerate Rostec. The project is estimated to cost US$1.12bn and will be financed through a Russian export loan. However, subsequent reports again stated the plant would be gas-fired.
In October, Iranian Ambassador to Russia Mehdi Sanaei said that the ceremony for the first stone laying will take place soon.
In December, Mohsen Tarztalab, managing director of Iran's Thermal Power Plants Holding Company, said the project would begin construction "in a month or two." The €1.6 billion project was expected to be running in five years, i.e. by 2022.
