Iranian minister inaugurates five electricity projects
Iranian Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian inaugurated five electricity projects worth over $690 million across the country on Tuesday.

The inaugurated projects comprised 8,142 sub-projects including numerous electricity supply projects, as well as power grid modification and optimization projects, IRNA reported.

According to Ardakanian, the Energy Ministry inaugurated 250 projects in the last Iranian year (ended on March 20).

Iran's nominal power generation capacity stands at about 74,000 megawatts. The country will add another 2,000 megawatts to its national grid during the current year amid efforts to cope up with a runaway demand, the minister said.

On March 2, Ardakanian inaugurated a smart system for improving the ministrys support and emergency centers as well as a new customer service.

A mechanized network monitoring system was also put into operation. This system monitors the electricity networks of various provinces in order to reduce electricity losses and improve the efficiency of the countrys power network.

As reported, electricity losses in the countrys power network were reduced from 14.5 percent in the Iranian year ending in March 2014 to 9.5 percent in the last Iranian year. As a result, the fuel consumption by the countrys power plants has decreased by 16 billion liters.
