After the German and Italian companies expressed interest for construction of power plants in Iran, a new round of negotiations has begun with South Korean power companies to develop bilateral cooperation in Iran’s power industry during the post-sanction era.

Accordingly, the talks between Iran’s Energy Ministry officials and representatives of four South Korean companies were held in Tehran.

Iran’s primary suggestion to South Korea’s electric power companies was export of Iran’s electricity to neighboring countries as the government has issued the relevant license.
