MAPNA, the country’s largest power plant engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor, built and implemented the 25MW mobile power plants in two northern Iranian cities.

The newly-implemented power plants have been successfully synchronised in Noshahr and Behshahr and can be installed and launched in less than three months. According to MAPNA, the station can enter the electricity grid in less than 25 minutes and can function under both gas and diesel fuel.

The mobile power station units are portable generators, which are ready to start once they arrive at a site. It is a fast power solution or for generating backup power during natural disaster relief, plant shutdowns or grid instability.

In other cases, when the amount of power injection into a city is inadequate or ineffective blackouts needed to be prevented, mobile power stations have proven to be a suitable solution.

The operation of mobile stations is prevalent in several countries due to easy transport and quick installation capabilities. These stations offer fast solutions in areas where immediate supply of electrical energy is needed. Another advantage of the portable units is that they require limited space for operation, which offers greater flexibility for construction of powerhouses.

Iran Power Plant Projects Management Company, MAPNA Group, is an Iranian enterprise, which operates in the area of construction and development of thermal power plants.
