Geothermal energy is a Renewable Energy ans is generally accepted as being an environmentally benign energy source, particularly when compared to fossil fuel energy sources.
The Sabalan geothermal power plant is planned to produce 50 MW electricity in
2011 in cooperation of the Ministry of Energy (MOE) and Renewable Energy Organization of Iran (SUNA).
The wells drilled during 2002/2003, vary in depth from 2265m to 3197m by NIDC and Pars Technic cooperation.
All equipment manufactured by Pars Technic Co. were installed on the wells and two of the wells
were successfully discharged hot fluid with enthalpies in the range of 950 to 1000 kJ/kg. A preliminary
resource assessment confirms the presence of a geothermal resource with temperatures within the drilled
area up to 250 °C and with at least 5 km2 of proven commercially exploitable resource and possible
expansion over a likely resource area of 19 km2.
A first stage geothermal power development of 50 MW has been committed for commissioning by the end of 2011 according to an engineering feasibility study
conducted for assessing possible development options for the field.
This will be the first geothermal power development in both Iran and the Middle East.
The plan includes drilling more 20 wells (delineation, production, and re-injection) as well as plant construction with allocated total fund of approximately
100 million EURO "Dr. Chitchian, 2008".
Pars Technic is proud to be chosen by MOE as an EPC company to design, manufacture and erection the Well-Head-Seperator, Flow Measurement,
Silencer, Air-Mud Separator, Cooling Tower and all other equipment that were needed to measure the wells are producing enough steam to make a clean energy.
