Norway to Build Wind Power Plant in Iran
Tehran and Oslo are set to broaden their cooperation on the construction of wind power plants in Iran, The Renewable Energy Organization of Iran (SUNA) announced. Norway will help Iran build a US$70 million wind power plant project with the capacity of generating 50 megawatt electricity on 500 hectares of lands. Governor of Haris city, Saber Taghvimi, announced on Tuesday (31 January 2017) that a Norwegian company is to set up a wind power plant in the city.
Nowadays, utilizing renewable energies is considered as a solution to the energy crisis. Wind energy is one of the most available forms of renewable energies which originated from Iranian windmills in Sistan and Balouchestan which is one of the windiest provinces in Iran.
In a relevant development in mid-November, National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) and Norway's DNO signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on the development of an oilfield.
The agreement signed between NIOC and Norway's DNO involves studying Changuleh oilfield which sits on Iran’s border with Iraq in the Western province of Ilam. Based on the agreement, Norway’s fourth largest oil and gas company will study Changuleh within six months – a crucial move that could enable it to win a deal to develop the field once the related talks with the NIOC succeed. Deputy Managing Director of the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) for Engineering and Development Gholam-Reza Manouchehri told reporters after signing the agreement with DNO’s Managing Director Bjorn Dale that the field could be linked to another nearby field named Azar.
