Japan’s Hitachi Company has resumed cooperation with Iran's Fajr-e-Jam Gas Refining Company (FJGRC).
The FJGRC Managing Director Hadi Hashemzadeh Farhang told reporters that Japanese Hitachi Company will participate in construction of the refinery’s second power plant with capacity of generating 82.5 megawatts of electricity per hour, source reported.
The construction of the power plant was in agenda since 2006, but delayed due to sanctions, he added.
“Following implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and presence of Japanese Hitachi Company in the refinery, construction of the power plant has been put on agenda once again,” said Hashemzadeh Farhang.
Hashemzadeh Farhang further said that two units of the refinery are operational so far and the third unit will be put into operation by March 2017.
The official said his company had produced 4.4 million barrels of gas condensates, exporting them to South Korea, India and Japan in the first eight months (March 20-November 20).
He said the refinery’s gas condensates are exported after shipment to Sirraf port.
He noted that since starting activity, his company has produced 269 million barrels of gas condensates.
