Bushehr, hydroelectric power stations, combined cycle, nuclear power plant, steam

Between 1979 and the mid-1990s Iran quadrupled its electric power output through the construction of several new natural gas, combined cycle (using both gas and steam), and hydroelectric power stations. Thermal plants supply 93 percent of the country’s electricity, and hydroelectric facilities provide most of the rest. In 1975 the government began building a nuclear power plant at Bushehr, on the Persian Gulf coast. The partially completed plant was bombed during the war with Iraq. In 1995 Russia signed an agreement to finish construction of the plant.
