Background

Dokouheh power station is located on the 15th kilometer of Karkheh Dam Road.[1] This is near the Andimeshk-3 power station (at the 10th km), and the two are easily confused given they are both often referred to as the "Andimeshk Combined Cycle Power Plant" and have similar construction timelines.

Originally the Dokouheh power station was scheduled by the Ministry of Energy to be commissioned from 2019-2020.[2] Construction was well underway in 2020. The 307 MW gas turbine was scheduled to operate in open cycle mode by the end of 2021, and the steam turbine would be added the year after to convert the plant to combined cycle mode.[3]

The gas turbine was connected to the grid in March 2021.[4]
