Germany’s Medio Energy signed a memorandum of understanding for the construction of a wind and a solar power plant in south Iran.

The agreement, which is worth $108 million (€104 million), was signed by Khuzestan Regional Electricity Company and Germany’s Medio Energy Invest GmbH & Co. KG, to build the solar and wind units in the cities of Shushtar and Bandar-e-Mahshahr in Khuzestan Province, Mehr News Agency reported on Saturday.

Mahmoud Dashtbozorg, managing director of Khuzestan Regional Electricity Company, expounded on details of the two agreements with the Germans.

“The cooperation agreement with Medio Energy was signed in line with the declared policy to promote renewable energy and attract foreign investment,” he said.

“The deal covers construction and implementation of a 20-megawwat solar power station in Shushtar through direct investment worth €24 million in addition to building a wind power plant in Bandar-e-Mahshahr with an output capacity of 50 MW and costing €80 million."
