Zahedan Export power station is a cancelled 1,300-megawatt (MW) gas-fired power plant in Sistan & Baluchestan Province, Iran.
The map below shows the approximate location of the proposed power station in Zahedan, Sistan & Baluchestan Province, Iran.
In 2012 Iran had signed an MoU with Pakistan to export 1,000 MW of electricity. Iran would build the gas-fired plant as well as transmission lines to deliver the power to Pakistan. The deal appears to have been delayed aside from a 2010 feasibility study, and in 2019 a new agreement was announced for Pakistan to import 100 MW.
There have been no updates on the proposal as of July 2021 and the project is assumed to be cancelled.
