Siahpoush Wind Farm contains 18 wind generators with a capability of three.Four MW manufactured by Siemens, which makes use of the newest gear-less know-how, the flexibility to provide electrical energy for greater than 75,000 households and prevents from producing greater than 110 thousand tons of greenhouse fuel per 12 months. The produced electrical energy is injected to the facility Grid by energy plant’s direct 230/33 KV substation. (Source and picture: Tehran Times)
