Iran inaugurates largest wind farm in eastern region

(MENAFN) Iran's energy Minister, Ali Akbar Mehrabian, recently inaugurated a significant milestone in the country's renewable energy landscape: The Mil Nader Wind Farm in the eastern region. This wind farm, boasting a capacity to generate 50 megawatts of electricity, marks a substantial step towards bolstering Iran's renewable energy infrastructure.

Comprising twenty turbines each with a capacity of 2.5 megawatts, the Mil Nader Wind Farm stands as the largest of its kind in Iran's eastern sector. Its inauguration during Minister Mehrabian's visit to the southern province of Sistan-Baluchestan underscores the strategic significance of renewable energy development in the region.

Located in Nimruz County, northwest of Zabol, within Sistan-Baluchestan province, the Mil Nader Wind Farm sprawls across approximately 1,000 hectares of land. Its construction commenced in 2020, signaling Iran's commitment to harnessing clean energy sources to meet its growing electricity demands.

The operationalization of the wind farm is poised to deliver substantial environmental benefits, including significant water and diesel savings. With the generation of every 100 megawatts of renewable energy, over 250 million liters of water and 30 million liters of diesel are estimated to be conserved annually, underscoring the sustainability and efficiency of wind power.

Looking ahead, the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Organization of Iran (SATBA) envisions the Mil Nader region as a key hub for renewable energy development. With plans to generate up to 700 megawatts of electricity in the coming years, the region is poised to play a pivotal role in Iran's renewable energy transition.

The accelerated development of renewable power plants under the current government administration reflects Iran's commitment to diversifying its energy mix and reducing reliance on fossil fuels. Through innovative investment packages and strategies, the Energy Ministry aims to attract capital and drive the expansion of renewable projects nationwide, paving the way for a more sustainable energy future.
