MSC wins national top spot in operating power reserve


Mobarakeh Steel Company (MSC) won the national top spot in operating power reserve thanks to a raft of measures it took last summer as part of its electricity saving project.
In light of the fact that in recent years power plants have failed to develop as fast as electricity consumption has grown, the Energy Ministry has at times faced problems in supplying enough electricity to households and industrial users in summertime, the head of MSC power distribution department said, adding this has prompted the Energy Ministry to reach out to industrial users to contribute to a so-called demand response program to help it supply electricity to households which have priority over the industrial units.
Abdol Rasoul Ahmadi-Bani said measures to reserve the operating power along with planned reduction in industrial, agricultural and administrative consumption were among the most important plans of the Energy Ministry to that end. Each year, the Energy Ministry works out instructions and executive regulations which come with financial incentives for those who contribute to measures to cut electricity consumption. The operational plans of the Energy Ministry featured measures to cut power consumption in peak hours and during repairs in the summer.
He added since MSC is a leading entity on a national scale when it comes to commitment to social responsibilities, it feels duty-bound to cooperate with the Energy Ministry. On that front, Isfahan Province and MSC led other provinces and other industrial units across the country last year.
In conclusion, he said each year the Energy Ministry hands out bonuses to facilities which lead the way toward its goals. In the 12 months to March 20, 2016, MSC received 120 billion rials in such bonuses; one year later the figure Mobarakeh Steel Company received jumped to more than 160 billion rials.
