Background

Construction of the Dezful power station began on October 20, 2017. The plan was predicted to cost $650 million and to be built by Italian power engineering firm Ansaldo Energia. According to the Financial tribune "The state-owned Thermal Power Plants Holding Co. is the general contractor and Iran's Ghadir Investment Co. is tasked with raising funds for the project."[1] In 2017, Eghtesad Online reported "the plant is slated to be built in three years" (by December 2020).[2] The Ministry of Energy expected the plant to begin open cycle operations in 2021.[3]

As of July 2021, it is not clear if construction has been completed or ever truly began. Ghadir Investment Company's page for the plant is largely blank without any start dates or contractors listed.[4] Because of this, and a lack of media updates, the project is assumed to be shelved.
