Two groups of companies submitted bids by 1 February for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to build four power stations with total capacity of 3,000 MW. The client is Iran Power Development Company (IPDC). The power stations are part of a larger scheme to set up eight gas-fired plants across the country with capacity of 6,000 MW (MEED 17:1:03; 25:10:02).

The bidders on the project are: Iran Power Plant Projects Management Company (Mapna), with Germany's Siemensand Italy's Ansaldo Energia; and France's Alstom, with Mitsubishi Heavy Industriesof Japan and a local firm. The bids included financing proposals.

Evaluation of the technical proposals is scheduled to be completed in March and will be followed by the opening of commercial offers.

Under phase 1 of the 3,000-MW programme, the successful bidder will expand an existing 1,000-MW gas power plant south of Tehran and build one 600-MW and two 700-MW stations in the provinces of Azerbaijan, Bushehr and Khorassan. Phase 2, which will see the installation of an additional 3,000 MW of power, will be tendered later in 2003. All plants will be operated by state power generation and transmission company Tavanir.
