Background

The Khoramabad Power Generation Company was registered "the operator and major investor of Khorramabad 1,000 mW combined cycle power plant" in 2005. The company is a subsidiary of Iran Power Plant Investment Company (aka SANA, the acronym of its full name in Farsi). While initial estimates refer to Khorramabad as a 1,000 MW station, the SANA invest website lists its gross capacity as 968 MW.[1][2]

The power plant project was planned for two phases, "each with a capacity of 484 MW including two V94.2 gas units and single steam unit as combined cycle block and with a total investment of €560 million." Sana states on their website that the first phase was planned to become operational in 2018.[3]

The project construction was delayed for over a decade, but in 2021 the first two gas units were commissioned.[4]
